Basic Granola

Oh boy, I love this stuff.  Its been calling my pregnancy name for days and its high time I make it up again.  I seriously created this one pulling my favorite parts from various recipes from friends and cookbooks.  Its fun to play with too, lots of delicious variations to be had!


2 cups honey
1 cup oil
8 cups rolled oats (not quick cooking)
2 cups coconut
2 cups rice krispies
1 cup wheat germ or wheat bran
2 cups almonds
1 Tbsp cinnamon

Line 2 cookie sheets with foil.  Mix all the dry ingredients together.  Heat the honey and oil until they can mix well.  Pour over the oat mixture and stir until well coated.  Divide evenly between the two cookie sheets and bake at 325 for 25 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes.  When pan comes out of oven, press gently with paper towels and let cool.  Break into chunks and store in gallon size zip top bags.  Break into smaller pieces to serve with milk or eat as "bars" right from the bag.
