 I love being able to make things you would normally buy at the store.  I don't make my own cheese or anything, but granola I can handle.  I originally found this recipe in a Family Fun magazine, and have tweaked it to suit our tastes and what we keep around the house.  Our favorite way to eat this is on top of yogurt, so we leave the dried fruit out, but you can have as much fun with this recipe as you like!  Let me know how you like to make yours in the comments. 

Crunchy Granola

4 cups rolled oats                                   1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup wheat germ                                   1/3 cup honey
1 cup chopped walnuts                           1/3 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar                              
1 teaspoon cinnamon                              6 ounces dried fruit of choice (optional) 
1/4 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Stir together dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.   Make a well and add wet ingredients.  Toss the mixture until the ingredients are well combined, then spread it evenly on a cookie sheet.  Bake for 40 minutes, or until lightly brown, stirring every 10 minutes to keep from sticking.  Allow to cool completely, then stir in dried fruit.  Makes about 7 cups.

Approximate time to make*: 1 hour
Approximate cost for supplies*: $6 per batch
