Btw here's the broad outlines for 2 large cookie sheets worth of delicious granola
7 Cups rolled flakes. This could include Oats, wheat, spelt, rye, kamut, and probably more. Oats are the least expensive. 4 Cups Small dry cereals. This category could include: Wheat germ, 12 grain cereal, flax seeds or ground flax, oat bran, sesame seeds, buckwheat, steel cuts oats, corn meal, bulgur, chia seeds(if you want Holy Crap type) Amaranth seeds - do not put too much more than a tablespoon in as that ends up being a lot of seeds. Too many and the granola has a sandy feeling. 2 cups of sunflower or pumpkins seeds. Mix then add 1 Tbsp vanilla 3/4 c oil 1 1/4 cup water 2 tsp salt 3/4 c liquid or melted honey (but brown sugar, jam or other sweetners can be used) Mix well, Preheat oven to 250 degrees F Place on trays
