i know - granola has been around fa-ev-a!
this summer, we brought guests along home from church for lunch.
Mrs. S makes granola by the gallons to sell.
she was kind enough to give me the recipe for her sugarless one.
it's very delicious,
either alone or on yogurt.
No Sugar Granola

10 c. rolled oats
2 c raw wheat germ
1 c. wheat bran
1 c. chopped nuts
2 c. unsweetened coconut
1 c, sesme seeds
1/2 c. flax seed
3/4 T. salt

warm oil, flavoring and juice
1 1/2 c. canola oil
1 c. frozen concentrate apple juice
2 T vanilla or maple syrup flavoring
add this to dry mixture

divide into two pans, bake at 250 for 1 1/2 hours, stirring every thirty minutes.
(i substituted apple cider for the apple juice.)
the ingredients are very flexible and you can put your own additions to it,
such as chocolate chips, raisins, etc. 

 this recipe makes a good four quarts
and makes a beautiful gift!
 Quilted Nest gifted the candle to me at my Christmas Open House...
'peace' on one side - a snowflake on the other.

I thought that candle looked familiar! Homemade granola - what a great gift idea.
