Since my last post featured one of my dad’s signature recipes, I thought I would share one of my mom’s this time. There’s almost nothing that sticks with you better for breakfast than a bowl ofÂ granola. This is an easy recipe and makes a crunchy, hearty, not-too-sweet breakfast treat. It’s delicious with milk or yogurt, by itself or with other cereal.Â I like to sprinkle it liberally on my bowl of Cheerios. Try it – I bet you’ll love it!
Mom’s Crunchy Granola
6 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup each of:
- sunflower seeds
- wheat germ
- powdered milk
- chopped walnuts
- sliced almonds
1 T. cinnamon (optional) or 1tsp. vanilla (depending on flavor preference)
Mix together and spread on 2 greased cookie sheets. Bake about 10-15 minutes at 350F, stirring twice. Be careful not to overbake. After cooling in the pans, add dried cranberries or raisins and store in airtight container.
