This is one of my best granola recipes, enthusiastically endorsed by my 3-year old grandson. Even better, a slight modification will give you “‘nola bars”.
6 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup sunflower seeds or nuts
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup powdered milk
2/3 cup honey
2/3 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350oF.
Spread rolled oats in an ungreased 9” x 13” pan.
Bake 10 minutes and remove from oven.
Stir in the rest of the dry ingredients.
Combine the honey, oil and vanilla.
Add to dry mixture and stir until thoroughly coated.
Bake 10-15 minutes, stirring every 3-5 minutes until uniformly golden. Do not over bake.
Let cool in pan undisturbed. Then break into chunks.
To make granola bars:
Add one beaten egg and 1/3 cup milk to honey, oil, vanilla mixture before combining with dry ingredients.
Press mixture firmly into two well-greased 10” x 15” baking sheets.
Bake at suggested temperature until nicely browned.
Cut immediately into bars.
Remove from pans when cool.
