I was bored the other day so I made some granola. I tweaked a few different recipes that I had and the final product is good! It is fantastic over ice cream or yogurt. Miss V loved it with a splash of milk.
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 tbs light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup chopped or slivered almonds
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tbs vegetable oil
1 tbs water
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 300. Coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Mix oats, wheat germ, brown sugar, salt and nuts in a mixing bowl and set them aside.
Bring the maple syrup, vegetable oil, water and cinnamon to a simmer in a small saucepan. Drizzle over the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Pour mixture into the prepared cookie sheet and bake until golden brown, about 40 to 45 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Can be stored for up the two weeks in an airtight container. I know this won't last two weeks.
