I got this recipe from Chris Ebbers.  I love granola for all it’s oaty fiberous goodness, but it’s usually so full of oil that it’s not good for you.  Not this one!

6 cups oats (old fashion best)

1 cup wheat bran or wheat germ

1 cup whole wheat flour 

¼ tsp salt 

1 cup raw or not salted sunflower seeds


1-2 cups nuts ( you can use what you want.  I like slivered almonds and chopped pecans) 

Combine the following and then pour over the above mix:

1 tsp vanilla

½ cup oil (olive or canola or veg.  You can replace the oil with apple sauce) (or you could use flax seed oil and feed your brain, yes it’s high in fat, but the good stuff that won’t go to your waistline)

1 cup water

¾ cup brown sugar or honey 

Put mix in shallow greased cookie sheet or pan and bake @ 200 degrees for 1 to 1 ½ hours.  Stirring occasionally, maybe every 20 minutes.   

After cooled, then add dried fruit:  ½ cup to 1 cup of each.  (Raisins, (white and black), apricots, craisins, cranberries, blueberries, etc)
