We are back from our trip to Kansas for Thanksgiving and started today with a trip to the doctor’s office for a cast for our youngest who broke his arm while practicing tae kwon do with his older brother…never a dull moment. Before we went to the doctor, however, I sat down and ate a tasty bowl of this very yummy granola cereal.
3 cups Rolled Oats
1 cup Slivered Almonds
1 cup Shredded Coconut
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup flax seed
1/4 cups Butter
1/4 cups Honey
3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
1 pinch Salt
1 Tablespoon Orange Zest
1 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
Pour oats, coconut, almonds, wheat germs and flax seed into a large bowl.
In small bowl, mix butter, honey and brown sugar together. Microwave on high for about 1 minute or until sugar is mostly dissolved. Pour ingredients from small bowl into the large bowl of dry ingredients. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
Spread granola mixture evenly on tray and bake 40 minutes stirring every 20 minutes.
Cool on sheet tray and store in air tight containers.
Did I change anything? I added the wheat germ and flax seed. If you don’t have those just use four cups of oats instead.
What did the family think? This is for me only. 🙂 They did comment on how good it smelled though.
