My hubby and I stayed at the Bailey House Bed and Breakfast in Fernadina Beach, Florida several years ago and the innkeeper, Jenny, makes her own granola....let me tell you it is wonderful!! I asked her for the recipe and I am passing it on to you all....my hubby and I really loved it. It makes a lot so you can just make up half of the recipe if you want, but we made up the whole recipe and gave some in our Christmas baskets.
Mix together in a very large bowl (I used a large stockpot, because I didn't have a bowl large enough!)
12 cups rolled oats, old fashioned
1-1/2 cups wheat germ
1 lb. shredded coconut
1 cup sesame seeds
3 cups nuts, chopped (I used a combination of sunflower seeds, slivered almonds, pecans and walnuts)
To add AFTER baking:
3 cups dried fruits
Combine in a large saucepan or Dutch oven:
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1-1/2 cups water
3/4 cup safflower or canola oil
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cups molasses
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 TBSP cinnamon
Heat on low until sugar has dissolved (do not boil). Pour over dry ingredients, mixing well. In a 9x13" pans (I used cookie sheets), spread out mixture (do not put too much on pans---just like a single layer). Bake at 250 for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. You will need to do this several times in order to bake all of the mixture....it works best if you do not have the trays too full.
After cooking add 3 cups of the mixed dried fruit (chopped).
This recipe came from Jenny Bishop...Innkeeper at the Bailey House Bed and Breakfast in Fernadina Beach, Florida.
