Granola Cereal

Makes 5 or 6 cups

Preheat oven to 250º F.

3 cups uncooked, old-fashioned rolled oats

1-1/2 cups dried unsweetened shredded coconut

½ cup wheat germ or soy grits

1 cup sunflower seeds

¼ cup sesame seeds

½ cup raw honey

¼ cup light oil

½ cup cold water

1 cup slivered, blanced almonds

(½ cup raisins or cranberries)

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Combine the oil and honey. Add to dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. Add the cold water, slowly, until the mix is crumbly.
  3. Lightly brush a large, heavy, shallow baking pan and pour the mixture into it. Spread the mixture evenly to the edges of the pan.
  4. Place the pan in the middle of the pre-heated oven and bake for two hours, stirring every 15 minutes. Add one cup of slivered almonds and continue to bake for ½ hour, or until mixture is dry and light brown in color. Cereal should feel crisp to the touch.
  5. Turn off the oven and allow the cereal to cool in the oven. Add the raisins or cranberries, if you are using them, now.
  6. Remove cereal from the oven and cool. Place in a tightly covered container and store in a cool, dry place.

Serve with: Plain or with fruit and milk.
