Harvest Granola (from Nesco Food Dehydrator Cookbook)

Submitted by: SRWOODSY

Introduction

This is an adaptation from Harvest Granola recipe I got out of my Nesco Food Dehydrator cookbook. I used some lighter ingredients, and just changed some of the ingredients to my own liking. It's not low-cal, but it is one of the best "regular" granola recipes that I've come across. The dehydrator book has you making it into a granola "roll" and processing it in their machine. I just bake it in the oven. As with most granola recipes, there are endless possibilities for variations.

Ingredients


    5 C. rolled oats
    3/4 C. brown sugar (or Splenda Br. Sugar equivalent)
    1/2 C. wheat germ
    1/2 C. dried apple, chopped (I used apples that I had dried in my Nesco food dehydrator
    1/2 C. honey (Recipe calls for all honey, but I used 1/4 c. honey, and 1/4 C. 33% less calorie Lite Karo Syrup)
    1/2 C. sesame seeds (I toasted them in microwave first)
    1 C. raisins
    1/2 C. date crystals (I just cut up fresh dates)
    1/3 C. chopped almonds
    1/3 C. chopped pecans
    1/3 C. roasted, salted soy nuts
    (Regarding the nuts: The recipe called for 1 C. chopped almonds or pecans, but you could use ANY variation of nuts or seeds.)
    1/3 C. salad oil (I used coconut oil)
    1 t. vanilla
    1 stick Light Parkay Margarine (Recipe called for 3/4 c. margarine. I used light margarine, and less of it.)
    1 t. cinnamon

Directions

Mix together very well so that all the ingredients are distributed evenly. Adding dry ingredients to wet ingredients makes a crunchier granola. Spread onto a fruit roll sheet and dry at 145 degrees until crunchy. Crumble and store in a airtight container. (I just spread it on three cookie sheets and baked it in the oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes, and then stirred it around and baked another 5 minutes. Worked GREAT!

Serving Size: Makes 20 1/2 cup servings.
