6 c. Rolled Wheat (found at Health food store)
2 c. Wheat Germ (also at Health food store)
2 t. Salt
8 c. Rolled Oats (can be 5 min. or old fashioned)
2 c. Brown Sugar
--Can also add chopped nuts, sunflower seeds, coconuts, dried fruit
1 c. Light Vegetable Oil
1/2 c. Honey
2 t. Vanilla
Mix dry ingredients well. Add wet ingredients a little at a time, mixing well. Spread on a cookie sheet. Bake for 2-1/2 hours @ 225 degrees. Stir every 1/2 hour.
**FYI: When I make this, I 1-1/2 the recipe. However, I use a lot less oil than it calls for (only about 1/2 c.) and make up the difference with honey and water--mostly water. Just make sure you have a total of 3-3/4 c. liquid. Also, because you are using extra honey in this situation, I keep the brown sugar at 2 cups. Then I spread it onto 2 cookie sheets and bake for 3 hours rather than 2-1/2. When I take them out to stir it, I rotate the pans on the oven shelves.
We have a rule at my house: Only 1 bowl of granola a day. Otherwise it is gone WAY too fast!
