Toasted Granola

Making granola is fun, simple and very easy. All you need are some oats and your favourite add-ins and voila - delicious granola.

The recipe for toasted granola calls for oats, wheat germ, almonds and coconut to be tossed and toasted with honey with dried fruit being added in when it is finished. The thing I like about this recipe is that you don't toast the fruit. I've made other recipes where the raisins are put in the oven and come out bloated and burnt. Not yummy. This way you have perfectly chewy fruit and crunch oats.

You can have the granola with some milk or yogurt for breakfast or use it in a recipe that calls for granola. I was going to do this but it all gone so I have to make a new batch. The granola is tasty, sweet and substantial and keeps you going those days you're to busy to eat. Try it, you might like it.

Wow! My first try at granola and it was a universal hit (all four of us:))
There is a fine line between toasted and burnt, and I think I crossed the line, but still ... delicious.
Do you grease your pans????

St. Catharines Baker - I just line my pan with parchment paper. This way, nothing sticks and it is easy to stir every 5 minutes. Glad you tried it out!
