A dear friend gave me a link to The Happy Housewife the other day for a granola recipe. I've been reading THH for a long time and I can't believe I missed this recipe!
It's super simple. I am thinking about tweaking it a bit. For a yogurt topping, though, it works great! The eldest boy even liked it as cereal!
3 cups dry oatmeal
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup wheat germ
First melt the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the honey and salt and briefly heat with the butter. Turn off the heat and add the oatmeal and wheat germ. Stir. Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet. Spread the mixture out evenly and bake it at 375° for 10 minutes. It will be a golden brown color. Remove from the oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
