Here's what I put in my granola:
3 c. Old fashioned Oatmeal
1/2 c. wheat bran
1/3 c. flax seed meal
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1 c. chopped almonds
1/2 c. oil
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. peanut butter
Preheat oven at 350. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
After the granola is baked, let it cool and then add any type of dried fruit that sounds good to you. Just put the granola back in the bowl, add the dried fruit and stir it up. Pour it all into a jar or other container and you are done! I like to save my glass pickle jars and re-use them for things like this.
A few things I like about making granola:
•There isn't a "right" way. Basically you can use any ingredients that sound good to you.
•It doesn't dirty a lot of dishes. I think I used 2 bowls, one measuring cup, a tablespoon and a wooden spoon.
•You can make it as healthy (or unhealthy) as you want.
