An oldie, but a goodie...

This is the granola recipe that I have used since Sarah was little.  I found it in The Good Breakfast Book.  Mine isn't this edition, but maybe this one is better.  This recipe is infinitely changeable, depending on what you have on hand, like, or don't like in a granola.

   7 1/2  cups          oats, rolled (raw)
   1      cup           wheat germ
     1/2  cup           wheat bran
   1      cup           coconut shreds

     1/2  cup           honey -- (up to 3/4 cup)
     1/3  cup           water
     1/2  cup           peanut butter
     1/2  teaspoon      vanilla
     1/2  teaspoon      cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375F.  Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.  Heat together sauce ingredients, stir into dry ingredients, then spread onto two shallow baking pans.  Bake about 15 minutes, until dry and golden.  You may have to stir it half-way through the baking time to avoid overbrowning.
