Here's an easy recipe for granola that I got from my grandma. My kids love it!

Homemade Granola


  • ½ cup margarine
  • 2 cups brown sugar 1 1/2 cups is fine too.
  • 10 cups quick oatmeal raw
  • 7 ounce package flaked coconut


  • ½ c up wheat germ
  • 1 cup nuts and/or 1 cup raisins
  • Could also add flax seed instead of wheat germ or in addition to the wheat germ
  • Could add cran-raisins or cranberries too.


  1. Melt margarine; add brown sugar. Mix.
  2. Add 10 cups quick oatmeal (raw) and flaked coconut.
  3. Mix well until there are no lumps.
  4. Bake on cookie sheets that have an edge at 275 degrees for 25 minutes.
  5. Stir once while baking. Remove from oven and add wheat germ and any nuts and/or fruit you are adding. This makes 1 gallon.
