Classic Granola

Classic Granola

Both adults and kids alike will like this classic granola.  It’s great for breakfast or a snack and the good thing is that you’ll know what the ingredients are that you and your family are eating.  If you want to make this granola more wholesome then cut the honey and brown sugar in half. 


5 Cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats

1/2 Cup Rolled Wheat

1/2 Cup Rolled Rye

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds

1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans

1/2 Cup Wheat Germ

1/4 Cup Bran Flakes

1/2 Cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut

3 Tablespoons Sesame Seeds

1/2 Cup Powdered Milk or Soy Powder

3/4 Cup Honey

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

4 Tablespoons Water

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

1/2 Cup Raisins (Optional)

Preheat your oven to 325º F.  In a large size bowl combine the oats, wheat, rye, brown sugar almonds, pecans, wheat germ, bran flakes, coconut, sesame seeds, raisins and powdered milk.  Set aside.  In a small saucepan heat combine the vegetable oil, water and vanilla.  Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes.  Remove from the heat and pour over the dry ingredients and mix well.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Spread the mixture evenly over the baking sheets and bake for 40 minutes or until evenly golden brown.  Turn frequently.  Remove from the oven and allow the granola to cool completely at room temperature.  Store in airtight containers.  Makes 8 cups.
