Crunchy Granola

So, I guess you can call this my recipe.  I tried a few and then mixed them all together to get to something that we love.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

In a large bowl toss together:

1 c. coconut

1 c. chopped almonds or Brazil nuts

2 c. whole wheat flout (we use spelt)

1 c.wheat germ (or more spelt if you’re us)

6 c. rolled (not instant) oats

1 c.  raisins

Now in a smaller bowl stir together:

1/2 c. water

2 t. vanilla

1 c. honey (or agave nectar)

1 c. oil

Pour the liquid over the dry and mix until it’s all even.  Spread it out on 2 cookie sheets and bake at 325 degreed for  1hour 15 minutes.  Be sure to ‘shuffle’ it around on the cookie sheets with a  spoon a few times so that it gets crispy uniformely.   It should smell like heaven and have a beautiful golden color when it’s done.  when you pull it out be sure to shuffle it ’round one more time. Let it cool completely before putting it in airtight containers. 

One batch usually fills two of my 1/2 gallon jars and will feed all 5 of us for about 8-9 mornings mixed with yogurt or keifer.  Recipes for those two later…
