My healthy but yummy Homemade Granola Recipe


2 cups regular rolled oats (quick cooking oats work)
1 cup slivered almonds or your fave nut
1/2 cup coconut flakes (optional)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ 
1/2 cup honey
3 tbps maple syrup
2 tbs canola oil
1/2 cup ...ok I'm lying 1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)

In a large bowl combine everything except liquids (honey, oil,syrup).

Mix the liquids together in a separate bowl, whisking them so they mix into each other a bit better.

Add liquids to the dry mixture coating everything really well.

Spread onto a baking sheet (I covered mine with foil first to save time at cleanup) and bake at 300 F or 160 C for about...well.....till brown- ish. 
(Mine took 30 minutes, but I watched it as she (Miss Oven) misbehaves quite often.)

Pistachios, almonds,peanuts, and cashews....yumm.

I know these pictures are terrible, sorry-it's so dark by 4pm now! Grrrrr....

Throw this into a gallon Ziplock bag and enjoy it for a week--if it lasts that long with hungry people around. 

It will freeze for up to two months as well.
