Homemade Almond Granola

April 20th, 2011

My Mom gave me this granola recipe, and it is so good! She recommends eating it with almond milk poured over the top instead of regular old cow’s milk. You could even throw in some dried cranberries or raisins after you bake it. Yum.

homemade granola

4 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup sliced almonds
1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
6 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons warm water

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F. Lightly grease a big cookie sheet (one with edges) or two 9″ x 13″ pans. Stir together the rolled oats, wheat germ, sliced almonds, flaked coconut, and sunflower seeds in a large bowl. In a separate small bowl whisk together the honey, brown sugar, salt, oil, and warm water. Pour the honey mixture over the oat mixture and stir until everything is evenly coated. Spread the granola in your prepared pan(s), and pop it in the oven. Bake the granola for 1 hour and 15 minutes stirring every 15 minutes. Let it cool, and store your homemade granola in an airtight container.

    You certainly do take fantastic pictures. I think I will have to mix up a batch of Granola now. Ciao

  4. yummy looking granola! i must try it :)

  5. I love homemade granola — and agree about non-dairy milk. It isn’t so sweet as dairy milk, and I think it tastes better on cereal.

    Old cow milk is regular to you?

      Old cow milk is regular to me, because you regularly leave your milk in the back of the fridge to spoil!

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
