Baking Today

41ehsxzusml_bo2204203200_pilitb-dp-500-arrowtopright45-64_ou01_aa240_sh20_.jpgWe’ve been out of home made bread for about a week now. With so many errands to run and back-to-school shopping to do, sometimes baking falls by the wayside. So, today, I’m baking bread. The recipe is elsewhere on my blog. I’m also making a granola recipe which we have enjoyed for the past 25 years. It’s Simple Granola from the More With Less Mennonite Cook Book. So – without further ado – here is the truly simple, and truly tasty granola recipe:

SIMPLE GRANOLA

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Combine in large mixing bowl:
3 cups whole wheat flour
6 cups rolled oats
1 cup shredded coconut
2 teaspoons salt
Blend together separately:
½ cup water
1 cup oil
1 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
Add blended liquids to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Spread out on 2 greased cookie sheets and bake 1 hour, or until dry and golden.
Store in covered containers.
