An interruption with the storm and all so here is a recipe for you.
If you have never made Granola you should try.
It is so much better than the store bought stuff.
You can make this as sweet or not as you want.
Here is the whole recipe - but you can throw in anything you want just remember 6 cups dry to 1 cup wet.
My old tried and true Recipe:
Mix all the dry in a big pottery bowl.
Chop up in a variety of forms:
1 cup walnuts
1 cup cashews
1/3 cup almonds
(use any combination of nuts that you like)
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/3 cup coconut
1/3 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3-4 cups oats
mix all the wet in a big measuring cup
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
Add wet to dry with a big spoon and mix well.
Dump onto a cookie sheet- or two if you need the room and bake at 250- for 30 minutes.
Stir after 15- keep a close eye after 25.
add dried fruit of your choice in the last 2 minutes- just to warm it and blend in.
BECAUSE you do not want to burn the dried fruit- trust me.
