Granola

I love granola, but I really hate buying it. It's expensive and it's never quite right. Today I made granola for the first time and now I'll never have to buy it. Kim, The Inadvertent Farmer posted this recipe over at Not Dabbling In Normal and it is delicious!
Here are the dry ingredients all mixed together.Ready to go into the oven, I needed two cookie sheets.
All done after the addition of the raisins and almonds.
Granola Muesli
4 cups oatmeal 4 Tassen Haferflocken
1 cup wheat germ 1 Tasse Weizenkleie
4 tbs brown sugar 4 Essl. brauner Zucker
1/4 tsp salt 1/4 teel. Salz
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1 1/2 teel. Zimt
1/2 cup maple syrup 1/2 Tasse Ahornsyrup
5 tbs vegetable oil 5 Essl. Ole
3 tbs water 3 Essl. Wasser
3 cups extras 3 Tassen Extras
(coconut, raisin, nuts) (Kokosraspel, Rosinen, Nuesse)
Preheat oven to 275
Mix oatmeal, wheat germ, sugar, salt and cinnamon and coconut. I added I cup coconut to this batch.
Mix syrup, oil and water and heat until hot. (Either on stove top or microwave) I did it in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes. Drizzle over dry ingredients and mix well.
Spread on 2 cookie sheets and bake for 30 minutes.
Now add the other extras, I added 1 cup of golden raisins and 1 cup slivered almonds. Bake 15 to 20 minutes more. Let cool and store for about 2 weeks.

In einer Schuessel die Haferflocken, Weizenkleie, Zucker, Salz, Zimt und Kokosraspel mischen. Ich habe eine Tasse Kokosnuss genommen.
Syrup, Oel, Wasser erhitzen. Entweder in einem Topf auf dem Herd oder fuer ca 1 1/2 Minuten in der Mikro. Ueber die trockenen Zutaten geben und gut vermischen.
Auf 2 Backbleche verteilen und fuer 30 Minuten backen. Nun die restlichen Extras zugeben, bei mir war es eine Tasse Rosinen und eine Tasse Mandelsplitter. Nochmals 15 - 20 Minuten backen.
Trocken fuer ca 2 Wochen haltbar.

  2. I used to make granola, and it was better than any in a box.

    I haven't made it in years - - -

  3. I will have to try that recipe. I like to take granola along on car trips.
    We don't have a place close by that I know of that sells German food. We do have the "Alpine" village of Helen north of here that looks like a German town. So you can purchase some things there. It sounds like you live in a military town going to the commissary. That sounds very familiar to me since my dad was in the Air Force.
    I ordered a few things today from the store. Hubby wanted 4 tubes of the senf, but I only ordered one since I want another Wohen and Garten magazine next month! I order a different apple spritzer too. Can't wait to get it! I still have some packages of Rote Grutze which I love. I noticed they had the sour cherries which I might get to make the cherry soup that my Oma always made. Yum!!
    Glad you liked the website!

  4. Ulrike, maybe I could bring you back a Wohnen and Garten Magazine from my next Germany visit? I don't think they sell Senf in tubes at the Commissary, but they do sell Duesseldorf style Senf in little mugs. Love the Senf and then keep the mugs to drink out of. :-)

  5. Danke für das köstliche Rezept. We will be making it here soon. Like you, we think making it is much better than buying it.

  7. I too hate to buy granola..but love to eat it. My first attempt at granola was a 'fatfree' version, and I was sorely disappointed. I'll have to give this one a try! Thanks my domestic friend!

  8. Oooh Anke, das sieht aber auch sehr lecker bei Dir aus ! Nur dass es bei mir wohl mehr als 2 Wochen halten würde bei der Menge ;-) Übrigens hab ich auch ein Rezept gegen Zickende Damen. Wenn sie das nächste Mal über das Essen meckern, dann lass sie mitkochen und dann werden sie sicher sagen, es schmeckt hervorragend ;-))) Und Du kannst immernoch behaupten, es wäre kein Gemüse drin, sondern nur etwas, dass bunt macht :-)
    Eine wundervolle Woche wünscht
    Eve

  9. Eve, meine Maedels essen das Gemuese lieber roh. Wenn es mal gekocht ist, wird es im Teller liegen gelassen. Habe mich mittlerweile damit abgefunden, solange sie es roh essen. Ausserdem pueriere ich Gemuese oft (still und heimlich ) und gebe es dann dem Essen zu. Hoffe sie finden das nie raus... :-)
