Granola


This is a staple in our household, I make about a batch a week.  I like it with plain yogurt and a little maple syrup for sweetener.

4 c oatmeal

1/2 c  each of any assortment of the following, as you have or like:  wheat germ, cream of rye, rolled rye or other rolled grain, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, almonds, pecans, cashews

handful of the following, as you like: coconut, pecan meal, flax seed or meal

mix together and add:

1/2 c canola oil
1/2 c maple syrup

Spread on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven on the top shelf for 15 minutes.  Stir and place on the lower shelf for 5 minutes.  Turn oven off but leave granola in to cool off slowly.

When completely cool store in a covered jar or other airtight container.
