This granola recipe has been on my list of things to make for awhile now. For some reason I had forgotten about it, but was quickly reminded when I went through and looked at Toni's video tutorials on bulk cooking. You really need to check out her post she has some great ideas. I wanted to make this granola so bad that I went to the store first thing this morning and purchased some wheat germ. I wont make that mistake again it was $4.19 a jar. Whew that is so high, I know this because I can get double that at Sprouts Market for so much less. But I couldn't get there till this weekend and I really wanted to make this today. For the first batch I followed the recipe exactly. When the granola was done I tasted it and it tasted really good but was a bit plain for me. Perfect for my kids because they don't like anything extra in their granola. But DH and I we like lots of different goodies in ours. I started on a second batch and added a few different things. Brown sugar, almonds, pecans and a bit of cinnamon sugar. I mixed it all in with the dry ingredients and then added it to the butter and honey mixture. When the granola was finished I could hardly wait to taste it. Goodness is all I can say I loved the addition of the different nuts and the brown sugar it gave it a whole new taste.
