I am still enjoying this granola, though not always with strawberries.

This is one of the best methods I have found for preparing granola. I like that the syrup is not added until the cooking is completed. It was much easier to cook and much easier to mix.
And this is also a really great tasting granola.
Nutty Sunny Granola
3 cups rolled oats
½ cup wheat or oat bran
½ cup wheat germ
1 cup coarsely chopped raw walnuts
½ cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup raisins
½ cup coarsely chopped pitted dates
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ cup pure maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 275oF.
In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, bran, wheat germ, walnuts and sunflower seeds.
Stir together and spread evenly on a baking pan.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Stir the mixture and again spread it out evenly.
Bake for another 15 minutes.
Remove mix from oven and transfer back to the large bowl.
Immediately add the raisins, dates and cinnamon.
Slowly pour in the maple syrup.
Stir to distribute the syrup evenly.
Let cool and store in an airtight container.
Will keep for 2-3 weeks.

So you made the Sweet Potato Crescent Rolls and still have lots of cooked, mashed sweet potato left. Here’s the recipe for using the rest. Sorry for the pancake-looking waffles, but I don’t have a waffle iron.

This recipe is subtitled “A Perfect Baby Cereal” and that is a pretty good description. The contributor tells us it was her baby’s first cereal and is still his favorite four years later. She just doesn’t grind the oats as finely.
Cooking the oats in milk instead of water means no milk has to be added at the table. So the cereal is “thick enough to stay on an upside-down spoon” as baby learns to feed herself. The banana also supplies all the sweetening needed. So no starting baby on a sugar addiction.
And grown-ups can enjoy the cereal as well. It tastes good. For adults and older children, just don’t grind the oats as finely—or even at all.

It takes almost more time to assemble the ingredients for this classic recipe than it does to mix and bake the cookies. After all, it does really seem to contain “everything but the kitchen sink”. This version is a real, yet healthy indulgence.
