This granola recipe is so delicious. It is both healthier and cheaper than store bought granola. And it is pretty easy to make.

Granola Recipe

2 Cups old fashioned oats
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 Cup wheat germ
1/4 Cup ground flaxseed
1/2 Cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1 Cup chopped nuts(any kind you like) Almonds and walnuts are the best for you.

Put all dry ingredients into a large bowl.

Turn stove on low heat and add to a saucepan:

1 Tablespoon water
3 Tablespoons canola oil
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon (depending on how strong you want it)
1/2 Cup Honey
Mix together until runny. Pour over dry ingredients and mix well.

Spray cookie sheet and spread granola on cookie sheet.

Bake at 275 for 40-45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, as not to burn. Coconut will start to look golden as it gets done.
When done, let cool completely before putting into a airtight container.

I like to eat mine like cereal with raisins(any dry fruit) or any fresh fruit I might have in the house. It is also good on yogurt, or a healthy topping on ice cream.

* you can double or triple the recipe if you like to make more at a time.
