I love the versatility of granola. It is great sprinkled over yogurt, drowned in milk or grabbed by the handful! My favorite part of this recipe is the smell in the kitchen when it is baking. The whole house is filled with a warm, toasty aroma and my mouth waters waiting for a taste! I think the secret ingredient in my version of homemade granola is the banana chips. I always toss in an extra handful!
2-1/2 cups uncooked rolled oats (the old-fashioned, not quick-cooking)
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup toasted wheat germ
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup instant nonfat dry milk solids
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dark raisins
1-1/4 cups dried banana chips
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine the first 10 ingredients (oats through cinnamon) in a very large bowl.
3. Whisk together the next 3 ingredients (oil through salt). Pour honey mixture into oat mixture and combine thoroughly. Spread in a large pan (like a roasting pan or a 9-by-13-inch pan) and bake until toasted, about 30 minutes, stirring well every 10 minutes.
4. Stir in raisins and banana chips and bake another 6-8 minutes. Cool in pan, stirring frequently. Store in airtight container. Makes about 6 cups.
