Have you ever noticed how small the boxes of granola are in the store?  I love granola but it seems like a person only gets a couple of bowls per box.  Here’s a granola recipe that is easy and you can make as much as you want.

3 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. wheat germ
1/2 c. chopped almonds
1/3 c. honey
1/3 c. orange juice
Grated orange peel from one medium orange
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. dried mango

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Toast wheat germ on low heat.  Mix with oatmeal and almonds.

Stir honey, orange juice, orange peel and cinnamon together in a saucepan.  Heat until boiling.

Pour over oatmeal mixture and stir until coated.

Pour onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes.

Add dried fruit to partially cooked granola.  Bake for another 10 minutes or until light brown.
