Judy's Yummy Granola

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

In a large bowl, stir together:
  • 5 c. old fashioned rolled oatmeal
  • 1 c. wheat germ
  • 1 c. large flaked coconut (found at Food Front)
  • 1/2 c. chopped almonds
  • 1/2 c. sunflower seeds (roasted, unsalted)
Optional: other nuts, dried fruit
In a saucepan, combine:
  • 2/3 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. canola oil
  • 1/4 c. instant dry milk
  • 1/4 c. honey
Place over medium heat and cook, stirring, until well blended, about 3 to 5 minutes (might take a little longer). Remove from heat and add:
  • 1/2 tsp almond flavoring
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Stir together with dry ingredients. This is very hot, if you want to mix with your hands as I do, start by stirring with a spoon until the mixture cools enough to handle. Spread mixture on one large or two cookie sheets and bake uncovered for 45 minutes, stir after 25 minutes

Remove from oven and spread out on brown paper to cool (I don't do this step, just take out of the oven and set cookie sheet(s) on cooling rack.)
