Honey Peanut Granola

I've always been a granola lover, but it's so expensive to buy at the store. So one day I looked on the internet and found this recipe.  I tried it out and loved it!  It's super easy, sweet, salty and tasty.  It's great with yogurt or alone.  Try it!

Tip: I've substituted the wheat germ for wheat bran, but you can also leave it out and add more oats.

Honey Peanut Granola
3 cups quick oats
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. warm water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

2. In a large bowl, combine oats, peanuts, and wheat germ.

3. In a separate bowl, combine honey, brown sugar, vegetable oil, water, salt, and vanilla. Stir well; then pour into the oat mixture, and stir. Spread out on a cookie sheet.

4. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool before serving.
