Homemade Granola

Are you officially granola if you make homemade granola?  My friends and family joke, calling me granola because we are eating more 'traditionally' now.  I don't think I am, I think I am a 'sorta' granola.  Kinda, sorta- like this great blog "Sorta Crunchy."  She wrote a post about the 'sorta' part, and I 'ditto' the post.

Back to the recipe, its a keeper!
I found it on my friends blog "the_uncomplication_project."  Her blog is just a couple months old, but she is off to a great start!  I have learned from her already and look forward to her future posts.

Like she says on her blog, it is not a crunchy granola, it is a bit chewy, which I like!  It was very easy to make and my 2 younger girls devoured it.

Chunky Granola

Preheat oven to 350F
Place in ungreased 9x13" pan:
6 c rolled oats
Bake 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and stir in:
1/2 c. sunflower seeds or nuts (I used pumpkin seeds)
1/2 c. coconut (I didn't have any, used dried cranberries instead)
1/2 c. wheat germ (I forgot this ingredient, oops!)
1/2 c. powdered milk

Add to dry mixture:
2/3 c. honey
2/3 c. oil (I used coconut oil)
1 t. vanilla

Stir until toroughly coated. Bake 10-15 minutes, stirring every 3-5 minutes until uniformly golden (I do 4min-4min-3min). Do notoverbake. Let cool in pan undisturbed, then break into chunks. 

Click on over to "the_uncomplication_project" to see her notes on the recipe, and while you are there, check out the blog she's got going on so far.
