I’ve been on the hunt for an easy, uncomplicated granola recipe. Yes, I wanted to emphasize that I wanted a really simple recipe! And I finally found one, courtesy of my mom’s old Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. It really doesn’t get any easier than this! I’ll give you the official recipe and then share my alterations at the end.
2 1/2c whole grain oats
1c shredded coconut
1/2c coarsely shredded almonds
1/2c sesame seed or wheat germ
1/2c shelled sunflower seed
1/4c cooking oil
1/2c snipped dried apricots
Stir together everything except the oil and honey. Combine oil and honey, then stir into mixture. Spread into a 13x9x2 inch pan on a sheet of parchment paper. Bake for 40 minutes or so at 300, stirring every 15 minutes. Pour out into a bowl when done (made easy by the parchment paper) and stir often while cooling to prevent clumping. enjoy! Keeps about 2 weeks unless you freeze it.
I didn’t have most of the official ingredients, so I used mixed nuts (with sea salt), raisins, and cranberries. A future batch will likely include chocolate chips.
