Brain Food

I Love...


Mmm yum!!

After most of us kids had left home my mom and dad decided to run a bed and breakfast!

They did it for a number of years and one of the items my mom often made was this scrumptious homemade granola.

10 C. Oatmeal

1 C. Sunflower seeds

1 C. Nuts

1 C. Coconut

1 1/2 brown sugar

1 1/2 C water

1 1/2 C. Oil

1 Tbsp Vanilla

1 Tbsp Maple (But I use Almond flavor)

2 tsp. Salt

Mix this all together in a big fix and mix and put it on a 9 x13 baking sheet.

Bake at 325 for one hour or until brown...make sure you stir it up every so often to get it browned evenly.

If it could be improved it would be by adding this...

Fruit and Yogurt!

My kids even eat it!

So good for you and so delish!


  1. I tried the granola recipe today and it was very good. I cut down on the sugar just because I need to and it is still very tasty. Now I need to copy it out and stick it in my file. Thanks.

  2. You are welcome Velma!
    Good to know about less sugar too! I wonder if Honey would work??? I have never tried it but I'm sure other sweeteners would work. If you like Dates those could add a natural sweetness as well!
