We use to buy several boxes of granola at one time until I decided I needed to find a recipe that made a big batch. I had heard Norman's brother talk about how much he enjoyed his wife's granola and was quite excited when I was finally able to get her to share that recipe with me. It has been a huge hit at our house and now I will share it with you in hopes that you too will love it.

First mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Next place all the wet ingredients into your blender and blend well.

Mix the wet ingredients with the dry and place on cookie sheets.

You will find that there is nothing better than good old homemade granola and the satisfaction it brings to know that you made it.


12 cups quick oats
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup flaked coconut
2 or more cups assorted nuts and seeds, i.e., slivered almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds

Thoroughly mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside.

Meanwhile, place the following ingredients in a blender and blend until thoroughly mixed (do not blend too long as it will get too thick):

2/3 cups water
2/3 cups oil
1 cup dry powder milk
1 cup sweetened condensed milk (I use fat free)
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
1 teaspoon vanilla

Slowly add mixture to dry ingredients, make sure to mix well.

Spread mixture onto 2 or 3 cookie sheets (or roasting pans) and bake for 2 hours (until golden brown) at 200 degrees. Stir mixture every 30-60 minutes.

Try it sometime you will love it too.
