Granola - Megan's Recipe


Note: From the comments on the recipe, this makes 2 trays full of granola. So, I have halved the recipe and it was still too much for one tray for me. It ended up sticking together into one big piece and then it crumbled into tiny pieces when I tried to break it up. Not many clumps.


Ingredients
4 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups wheat germ
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup maple syrup
3/8 cup honey
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup raisins or sweetened dried cranberries

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil.

Combine the oats, wheat germ, oat bran, sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, and walnuts in a large bowl. Stir together the salt, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat. Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking sheets.

Bake in the preheated oven until crispy and toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through. Cool, then stir in the raisins or cranberries before storing in an airtight container.
