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.
