Roan Bed and Breakfast Granola

Combine in large bowl:
  • 6 cups of uncooked regular oats
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • ½ cup wheat germ
  • ½ cup sunflower kernels
  • sprinkling of cinnamon
Combine in another bowl:
  • ½ cup Canola oil
  • 1/3 cup apple juice
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Pour liquid mixture over dry mixture and stir well.  Spread mixture evenly in large baking sheet and bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes (to degree of desired doneness), stirring every ten minutes or so. Cool.
Optional: Stir in raisins or dates or other dried fruit, if desired, or, for the holidays, candied fruit.  You can vary this a little by adding other grains or nuts, such as flax seed, pumpkin seeds, etc. as they are available.
