I grew up on homemade granola and it's truly a treat to have it in the house. I also love making this and giving it as gifts. It's a hearty breakfast that sticks with you on those cold winter days. I also add a variety of dried fruit to make it deliciously sweet. It takes 2.5 hours to toast it to a golden brown and requires being stirred every 15 minutes so it really is a labor of love. Here's the goods on how you make it.
Ahmelie's "I Love Your Heart" Granola
10 Cups Quick Oats
2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
3 Cups Oat Bran (May substitute other dry ingredients: flax seed, wheat germ, etc)
1 cup almonds, slivered or sliced
Mix dry ingredients in roaster.
1 Cup Honey
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Oil
2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Salt
Pour honey mixture over oats, stir in. Bake at 300* for 2.5 hours, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Add 1 cup raisins, 1 cup craisins, 1 cup dried/chopped apricots, 1 cup coconut. Stir into granola mixture. Serve over yogurt or with milk. Yummy!
