I’ve been promising a Granola recipe for a few days now, and since I just made it yesterday I have pictures fresh from my camera!
Here’s what you need:
1 cup wheat germ
1 tsp. cinnamon or more if you like
1/2 cup honey
4 tbsp. olive oil
Spray and 9x13 pan with Pam or the like and then put all of the ingredients in there. I like to squirt on some pure maple syrup as well. You can add coconut if your family likes that too.
Stir it up really well and bake it at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, stirring every 3 minutes or so. Store in an air-tight container.
You can get creative and add anything you want to it once it’s done-raisins, nuts, cranberries, dried blueberries, etc. We don’t usually just eat a bowl of granola, my kids like to sprinkle it on their frosted mini-wheat's or cheerios. This doesn’t last long around my house and smells GREAT while it’s baking!
P.S. Since publishing this initially I made another batch and this time I used Extra Virgin Coconut Oil instead of Olive Oil. My coconut oil has a slight coconut flavor so I thought it would be a tasty substitution. I was correct! Delicious! I used the same amount, just melted it first.
