because, unless I go to the dreaded Food Whole, I can't find any decent granola (my beloved morning eats, either with soy milk or yogurt and no, I am not a hippie, so you just stop).

(I'm not even sure what granola is, otherwise I'd help)

2 cups oats1 cup wheat flakes1 cup rye flakes[both of the above products look just like rolled oats]raw pumpkin seedsraw sunflower seeds
2-3 tblsp brown sugar3/4 cup maple syruphoney3 tblsp sunflower oilpinch salt
mixed the flavoring ingredients & the oil with the oats, flakes & nuts. baked in 250 degree oven until lightly browned. mixed in dried fruit and let cool.
need to monkey around with the flavoring a little bit (maybe add some spices, alter the sweeteners--perhaps a bit of fruit juice), and keep in mind that the cereal will crisp up a bit as it sits to cool.
anyhow...fairly satisfied with Breakfast Granola 1.

I just pulled a batch of granola out of the oven half an hour ago. I'm very happy with the recipe. So much so that I've been making it consistently since the 1970s. I have the recipe memorized by now.
In a saucepan, combine:
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use sunflower oil)1/2 cup honey2 Tbs molasses1 Tbs vanilla extract1 tsp ground cinnamon
Warm these at low heat for a few minutes until they are warm and runny. In a large mixing bowl combine, mixing well:
8 or 9 cups rolled oats1 cup raw sunflower seeds1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 235 degrees (not a typo). Now add 3/4 cup of nonfat dry milk powder to the warmed oil/honey mixture and stir it in. Pour into the oats/nuts mixture and mix until oats/nuts are well-coated. Use your hands if you need to.
Spread out the granola on a couple of cookie sheets. Bake on middle rack(s) at 235 for at least 90 minutes, but a full 2 hours will toast everything beautifully. Remove, let cool for 10 or 15 minutes. Store in covered container(s). Eat. Enjoy.
NOTES: It is easy to monkey around with this by adding cardamom, nutmeg, different nuts or seeds for variety. I never add dried fruit before baking - it gets baked to a crisp - but it is OK to add some in after baking.
