PrepperPenny's GranolaBuilding up my home store saves me money, time and allows me to control the ingredients my family is exposed to.  With a 3 year old and 5 year old, cereal is a given.  But who really wants to pour unhealthy, refined sugary food out for them?  Not this nana!  Here is a delicious and healthy alternative that my children love.

Homemade Granola Cereal
Recipe Type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Author: PrepperPenny
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 90 mins
Total time: 1 hour 45 mins
Serves: 15
Avoid refined sugar and eat healthier. Not just for adults, children love this sweet alternative to commercial cereals, too.
Ingredients
  • 10 C. Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 C. Toasted & Chopped Walnuts or Pecans or combination of both
  • 2 C. Almonds
  • 1 C. Shredded Coconut
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 3/4 C. Canola Oil
  • 1 C. Maple Syrup or Honey or combination of both
  • 1 Tbsp. Mollasses
  • 2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract *See recipe to make your own
  • 1 tsp Almond Extract
  • Optional: Dried Fruit
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 250*
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all the liquid ingredients.
  4. Pour liquids into dry ingredients and mix until everything is incorporated well.
  5. Transfer the combined ingredients into a jelly-roll pan or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. (This is a large batch and will likely take several pans) Spread granola evenly on each pan,
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, stir granola and return to the oven for another 30 minutes. Repeat one more time until they have cooked for a total of 90 minutes.
  7. Turn off your oven but allow them to sit inside the oven overnight. They will harden and become very crisp.
  8. Transfer granola into an airtight container where you can add raisins or other dried fruit of your choice. Dehydrated pineapple is delicious with this recipe.
  9. Stores for 4 weeks in your pantry or in the freezer for 6 months.
