I was inspired to make Granola by good friend Lisa in Hope, BC. This is how I am currently making it; really, it is whatever I have in the Pantry that determines the outcome of the Granola!
4 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Butter, melted
1/2 cup Honey
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1/4 cup Wheat Germ
1/4 cup Ground Flax Seed
* Sunflower Seeds
*Dried Apricot, chopped
Preheat oven to 325F (160C)
Line Baking Trays with paper, if desired.
In large bowl, combine oats, cinnamon, wheat germ, ground flax seed and salt.
In medium bowl, combine Fruit and Nuts you will be using; set aside.
In small bowl, combine melted butter, honey, brown sugar and vanilla.
Pour honey mixture over oats mixture and combine to coat all the dry ingredients.
Pour onto prepared baking trays and spread evenly.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven, stir in Fruit and Nuts, and cook for another 10 minutes.
Continue baking for another 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and stir; continue stirring occasionally until completely cool.
Store in airtight container.
