WFMW: Almond Maple Granola

We love granola in our family. We're a granola atop yogurt, ice cream, and especially granola with milk for breakfast. As you all must have noticed, the prices of cereal products have skyrocketed in your local markets, so it's time to learn how to make your own granola.

It's amazingly easy to make, and the best thing is, you can add or subtract ingredients to your liking. You like pecans, not almonds? No problem, just put pecans in. You don't like coconut? Substitute dried cherries or cranberries. It's up to you what ingredients you want to use. Just make sure you're following the basic oats, oil, honey, syrup, sugar additions. The rest is up to you!


6 c rolled oats
12 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 c blanched slivered almonds
4 Tblspns dark brown sugar
1/2 c wheat germ
1/2 c vegetable oil (canola)
7 to 14 oz flaked coconut
4 Tblpn warm water
2/3 c unsalted sunflower seeds
1 tsp salt
1 c pecan pieces
1/3 c honey + or -

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees Spray 2 large cookie sheets with brims with cooking spray

2. In large bowl toss oats almonds, wheat germ, coconut and sunflower seeds. In a separate bowl whisk together the maple syrup, brown sugar, oil, water and salt. Pour the liquid over the oat and nut mixture and stir until evenly coated. Spread into prepared pans. Drizzle honey evenly over both sheets.

3. Bake 1 hour and 15 min in preheated oven stirring occasionally until evenly toasted. Cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

One concern though, I'm a Republican. Will this stuff still work for me?

Yowza, that's a lot of sugar! For 6 cups rolled oats I use 1/3 cup honey OR 1/3 cup maple syrup. Not both, certainly not any additional brown sugar. Just heat the honey and 1/3 cup oil in the microwave and toss it with the dry stuff.
