Heres a granola recipe I have come to love. You can play with it, you know, its not like you need to be exact with your measurements and Ive also used different nuts but almonds and pistachios are my favorite combination. Enjoy it with hot or cold milk, or just eat it out of hand! I got this off the internet last winter and have been playing with the recipe ever since. Heres my version. 2 baking sheets, lined with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 350. In a large bowl, toss: 6 heaping cups old fashioned rolled oats 1 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened works just fine) 3/4 cup raw slivered almonds (coarsely chopped) 1 1/4 cup raw pistachio nutmeats (coarsely chopped) 1/4 cup wheat germ 1 /2 cup brown sugar sprinkle with the following and toss again: 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp cardamom 1 tsp almond extract 1/2 tsp salt Pour about ½ cup mildly flavored honey (clover works) over top. Spread onto baking sheets and bake, rotating and stirring every 20 minutess or so until the granola is a golden brown about an hour. Set the baking sheets on racks until completely cool. Transfer to an airtight container, breaking up the big chunks.
