Sous Chef: Amelia
Recipe: Granola (by my sister-in-law, Veronique White)
Preheat oven to 350.
6 cups rolled oats
1/4 c. sunflower seeds (used slivered almonds instead)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. fancy flake coconut
We added: 1/2 c. wheat germ (that is not part of the original recipe)
1/2 c. canola oil
1/3 c. honey
2 tsp. vanilla
* Dried fruit which is added towards the end of baking: 1/2 c. raisins & 1/4 c. craisins
Put on cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes. * Add dried fruit during the last 5 minutes of cooking time.
NOTES: See challenges below...
Before going into the oven and it looks good....
The first batch burned!!!! Since I have never made Granola before, I didn't know that you are suppose to stir it during the baking process. Also, I think the oven temperature was a bit too high because some other recipes I found for granola had it baking at a lower temperature. Next time I will try different techniques...
The good batch of Granola....YUM!
For a Family Home Evening treat tonight we made Granola Yogurt Parfaits! We layered light strawberry yogurt, granola and sliced strawberries!
Megan: "It's okay, I would like it better without yogurt."
Zachary: "I don't like the raisins."
Anna: "This is fabulous great!"
Amelia: "Very good."
