Also made some granola when Owen was here. Best granola ever. It's Casas comfort food. I used to send it to Owen when he was in Iraq and he loved it. It's a little different from other granolas in that it is not clumpy, but all loose instead.
Here's the recipe.
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup corn oil (reg veg oil works, too)
1/3-1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup each: sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, wheat germ, raisins. I also usually add flax meal (ground flax seed), craisins and nuts, if I have them on hand (like slivered almonds or hazelnuts)
1/2 teaspoon salt
Sometimes I also add a little cinnamon, about 1/2 teaspoon or less
Mix dry ingredients (MINUS the raisins) in 9"x12" pan - pour oil over and mix with hands. Bake at 375 degrees. STIR FREQUENTLY to keep from burning. Bake for about 20 minutes (ish - ? or more?) until some of the pieces of coconut start to get toasty brown. Add the raisins after it's out of the oven, unless you like the raisins (and craisins) a little cooked, in which case add them while it's still cooking.
We love this granola. Curtis calls it "nature's broom," if you know what I mean.
