July 2014 --- My usual "home breakfast" is a whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter or a meatless breakfast sandwich (egg and cheese on a whole wheat english muffin). But we're heading to Maine soon and English muffins don't toast well on Condor. I usually buy some granola for the early morning starts, and I'm usually disappointed. Too sweet for my taste.
1 c brown sugar [I use half brown sugar, half maple syrup]
1 t salt [I omit]
½ c canola oil [I use olive oil]
½ c water
1 t vanilla
1 c sunflower seeds [I omit]
18 oz oatmeal [~ 6 cups, not quick cook kind]
7 oz [~2 2/3 c - think this was based on the size of the bag, I use 2 c] shredded coconut
1 c wheat germ
Mix well. Bake at 300-325 degrees F for 45 minutes then add:
1 c chopped nuts
1 c raisins or currants [or dried cranberries]
Bake additional 15 minutes. Cool completely in pan before storing in closed container.
