Granola 777

The 777 represents the bake time combination, flavor perfection, and infinite variety possible.

Syrup:

  • 1/4 C butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 2 T brown sugar

Cereal:

  • 4 C rolled grains (oats and spelt are good)
  • 1/3 C wheat germ
  • 1/3 C oat bran

Optional:
Choose a few or think up your own…

  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 2 T raw sesame or flax seeds
  • 1/4 C raw sunflower or pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 C sliced almonds, walnuts, or pecans
  • 1/2 C wide coconut flakes
  • 2/3 C puffed rice
  • 1/2 C raisins or chopped dried fruit
  • 3 oz bag Apple Chips, gently crumbled

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter, vanilla, honey, and brown sugar over
medium heat and set aside. Mix the rolled grains, wheat germ, oat bran, and
optional add-ins except raisins/fruits. Pour syrup over cereal and mix well.
Spread evenly on a large cookie sheet or jelly-roll pan. Bake 7 minutes,
then stir. Repeat twice for a total of 21 minutes. It’s done when it starts
to brown, so watch the last few minutes. Cool the pan on a rack. The granola
will get crunchy as it cools. Add optional fruits and store airtight.
