Adapted from the Simple Granola recipe in The More-With-Less Cookbook
Note: this recipe is also posted here.
I ate it as a baby, my mom says. She just soaked it in hot water and then put it through the food mill. Mr. Handsome mixes it with homemade yogurt and jam for his morning break. Yo-Yo Boy is learning to make this all on his own. We eat it a lot. This recipe lasts us about a week.
14 cups oats (I use half quick oats and half rolled oats)
2 cups sugar
2 cups whole wheat (or cracked wheat if you want more of a crunch)
2 cups raw wheat germ
1 tablespoon salt
1 ½ cups canola oil
1 3/4 cups water
Mix the dry ingredients together and then add the wet. Spread the mixture on two large ungreased cookie sheets that have sides. Bake at 250 degrees for several hours, stirring occasionally until golden brown and crunchy. Cool completely and store in glass jars.
Yield: about five quarts.
is this the granola I snitched from the jar at your house? I was going to print out the soaked granola recipe from paprikahead and then I noticed your comment on the post and I can't imagine having my oven tied up for 12 hours.
Yes! We make this recipe about twice a week.
Felicidades amiga!(on your column) Seeing the pic of granola in a jar reminds me of the granola we ladies in the "white house" would make and keep on the counter and dip into nearly every morning until it was gone. Now I have to use your recipe and make some with the kiddos.
Elizabeth, Yes, it's whole wheat flour and white sugar. I hope you like it!
I've been meaning to try this. Is the 2 c whole wheat, wheat flour? White sugar, not brown?
Hmm, thanks for linking to this in your comment on my granola recipe. I forgot you posted this. I'll have to try it for the kids.
