  • Summary

    So many commercially made granolas are laced with sweetener and unwanted trans-fatty acids. They are just plain yucky and easily go rancid by the time you buy them off the shelf. A homemade version is very simple to make and worth the effort. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound rolled oats
    • 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut (or sweetened, if you prefer)
    • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
    • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
    • 1/2 cup wheat germ
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 1/2 cup safflower oil
    • 1/2 cup honey
    • 1/3 cup water
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup golden raisins
    • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, blueberries, or other dried chopped fruit
