Our Granola has been so popular that some guests have requested to purchase bags of it to take home.
8 cups old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
1½ cups light brown sugar
1½ cups raw sunflower seeds
1½ cups wheat germ
1½ cups shredded coconut
½ cup vegetable oil
¾ cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 °. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Heat oil, honey and vanilla in microwave on high for about 2 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Stir well and pour over dry ingredients. Stir vigorously until granola is well coated. Pour mixture on cookie sheets with high sides (we use jelly roll pans). Mixture can be piled high on the pans. Cook for about 15 minutes until granola is browned stiring after each 5 minute period.
Granola can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks in air tight ziplock bags.
