In my first year of college I lived with my mothers college roommate and her husband. One of the things I loved about living there was Marion's Granola. I have since been making my own from her recipe. It is healthy (better then Capt. crunch) and tasty. My sister has requested I post it

Mix together in a large bowl

4 cups oatmeal
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
1 cup bran
1 cup wheat germ
1 1/2 cups walnuts chopped
1 1/2 cups almonds chopped

Mix in

1 cup powdered milk
1 cup raisins
1 cup oil (vegetable not motor) my first batch didn't turn out quite right
1 cup honey

You can add other things if you like but this is what I usually have in our Granola. It is handy if you have a store with the ingredients in bulk. I shop Winco and they do have everything in bulk or just about.

Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 250 for one hour and then turn granola put back in and cook until brown. It seems to be another 45 mins and check it. My wife likes the chunks so I let it cool before I take it off the pan. Don't let it cool too long or it is hard to get it off. I put it in a large zip lock bag. this recipe makes 2 3/4 full bags.

This granola is of course good as morning or anytime cereal. We also like it in yogurt, on ice cream, or as a snack by the handful. Warning in our household this lasts for at most 1 week.
