One of my favorite things for breakfast is yogurt and granola. Love love love. I was spoiled growing up with my mom's homemade granola so store-bought just doesn't do it for me. So I made some this weekend and I think Ryan has already eaten a bowl for every meal. Yummy and good for you? Doesn't get much better than that.


6-8 cups rolled oats
1/2-1 cup wheat germ
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup honey
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 cup raisins / Craisins

Mix honey, oil, and vanilla together. Mix all other ingredients (except raisin/Craisins) together and add honey mixture. Stir. Spread on sprayed cookie sheets. Cook at 275 for 30 minutes, stirring pans every ten minutes and switching pans from top to bottom of oven every ten minutes. Add raisins/Craisins. Let cool. Store in airtight containers (ice cream bucket works great!).

I found all the raw ingredients at my local grocery store in the bulk section, but if you are having trouble finding anything try a health food store.
