Going granola (again)

1 Jun

I posted this recipe a few years ago but wanted to look at it in comparison to store-bought granola or muesli. We can buy a small box of generic muesli here for about $1.50 or a name brand for about $4.50. I calculated that this recipe makes the equivalent of two boxes and costs $6 max to make.

I love being able to control what goes into what we eat and this is a great price for a high quality recipe.

In a large bowl, mix:
2 cups whole wheat flour
6 cups oatmeal
1 cup dried coconut
3/4 sesame seeds
1 cup wheat germ (I subbed ½ cup cornmeal + ½ cup wheat bran)
½ cup powdered milk (opt)
2-3 cups peanuts

In another bowl mix:
½ cup water
1 cup oil
1 cup honey or maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix thoroughly. Spread on 2 non-stick cookie sheets or cookies sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 250 degrees for one hour or until dry and golden. Cool completely, then store in airtight container. Eat plain, as cereal, over yogurt or in trail mix.
