Granola (p)

I was lucky enough in 2011/2012 to have my daughter Rishona, her husband Matt, and their new baby Chava living with us for the first six months of babies’ life. I learned first hand what my new son-in-law liked to eat and was tickled to cater to his cravings. This granola was a weekly venture. He ate it every morning (and sometimes for dinner!) with a handful of mixed nuts. (I always double this recipe.)

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup honey
1 cup raw wheat germ (toasted is OK, if you can’t find raw)
1  T vanilla
3.5 cups oats
1.5 cups mixed chopped nuts (I generally used almonds, walnuts and pecans)
2 cups mixed dried fruit (like raisins, craisins, chopped prunes, chopped apricots)

Preheat oven to 375. Stir every thing together and place on a large baking sheet (I use non stick foil so their isn’t a mess to clean up.)  Sprinkle a little kosher salt across the granola before baking. Bake 15 minutes and stir well. bake more time if need to get all toasted. Be sure not to burn! Can be stored in a jar for a week or may be frozen and used as needed.
