I made two batches today and have given away 2 bags of it already. David just ate it over yogurt for dinner and loved it. That's saying a lot since he's not a granola kind of guy.
Here's the recipe which I adapted from this one. Enjoy!
- ½ cups Plus 1 Tablespoon Real Butter
- ⅔ cups Honey
- ¼ teaspoons Salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 cups Old Fashioned Oatmeal (uncooked)
- ½ cups Wheat Germ
- 2 Tablespoons Flax Seed
- ¾ cups Almonds, Slivered
- ¾ cups Pecan Pieces
- ¼ cups Light Brown Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
- ½ cups Dried Cranberries (Craisins)
- ½ cups Raisins or any other dried fruit you like
*I was going to add dried apricots too, but I bought the kind not treated with sulfer and didn't like them. I think dried pineapple would be delish here too.
**This wasn't quite as sweet as I thought it would be for eating plain, but it's perfect when paired with vanilla yogurt. I might add more sugar next time.
