This crunchy granola has enough protein and fiber to get you through the whole day!
|Yield||About 8 cups|
|Directions||Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Melt the butter in the saucepan, add the honey, and mix well. Stir in the seeds, nuts, and optional cinnamon. Add the bran and optional wheat germ, then add 4 c rolled oats. If the mixture is very wet and sticky, add some more oats.
Spread the granola on a cookie sheet and place on the center oven rack.
Stir every 10 minutes or so, and add the optional raisins after 20. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
|Notes||After the granola cools, store in in a tightly sealed container or plastic bag.
This granola makes a wonderful breakfast with yogurt and some fresh fruit (berries, peaches…). Or for a snack, try just a plain handful.
You can experiment with different kinds of nuts, dried fruit, and spices to find the mix you like best.
