Granola Cereal

Source: My friend Kristen

I have made this twice now and love having a granola cereal recipe to go with my granola bar recipe.  It is so nice to make your own granola and not have all the added sugar. Listed below is how the recipe was given to me. I’ve included how I made it.

4 cups oats (I used old fashioned)
3 cups nuts/coconut/fruit **

** I used
1 cup raisin
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup walnut pieces

3/4 cup oil (I used 1/2 cup canola oil)
1 cup sweetener, honey/molasses (I used honey)

Heat sweetener so it flows (about 30s in microwave).

Mix all ingredients, except for fruit.

Bake at 250-275 for 1.5-2 hours. (I found an hour at 250 worked for me).

Remove from oven, let cool. Add fruit.

1/4 cup rolled oats or Granola*
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

*Granola makes these Energy Balls more tasty and adds a nice crunch.
