I found this recipe in a library book back in 2001. I enjoy it as my morning cereal especially when the weather is warm. It’s very filling and satisfying with some healthy ingredients.
- 3/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup peanut oil
- 7 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1-1/2 cups wheat bran
- 1/2 cup wheat germ
I use a huge vintage graniteware pan that is about the equivalent of two 9×9″ pans. Spray pans with non-stick spray.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
In a small saucepan, heat honey and oil over medium heat for about 4 minutes.
In a large bowl mix oats, wheat bran and wheat germ. Drizzle the honey/oil mixture over and mix well.
Spread mixture in sprayed pans about 3/4″ thick.
Bake uncovered in 250 degree F oven for one hour, stirring about every 20 minutes. Note: Use a pan with sides to avoid having cereal crumbs all over the oven when you stir.
Cool granola, then spoon into one-quart containers. Refrigerate if not used within 2 weeks.
Makes approximately two quarts of granola (8 cups).
I like to add some walnuts and dried fruit with each serving along with some good cold milk.
