Prepare Today Homemade-Granola

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
This month (August) we are storing grains as part of our long-terms storage.  If you have buckets of oats and don't know what to do with them, then this recipes is for you!  I am allergic to nuts so this granola is a basic recipe that you can add many other ingredients to.  Nuts, dried fruit, etc. would be yummy in this granola!

Homemade Granola

5 C. oats
1 C powdered milk (non-instant)
1 T cinnamon
1 can frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
2 t vanilla
1/4 C oil
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients until well blended.  Spread out onto a large, greased, rimmed, cookie sheet.  Bake for 30 minutes, then turn over large sections with a spatula.  Bake another 15 minutes.  Turn granola again and bake another 15 minutes.  Depending on how cooked the granola is and how crunchy you like it, you may cook in 15 min. increments until finished,but mine is usually done after the second 15 minutes.  Let granola cool (remember it gets a lot crunchier as it cools, don't over cook it)  and crumble. Keep in an airtight container. 

We love this with homemade yogurt and sometimes some raisins or cashews!
