I have made all of these recipes myself. I always try to show the original source of the recipe, but am constantly editing them to suit our tastes (so technically they should all say "Adapted from..."). The portions are generally small since my family doesn't consume much food in one sitting.

When searching in the categories below, don't forget to click on "older posts" at the bottom right of the screen after scrolling through them to see more recipes in that category.

*I have recently added a $ label to show that I've calculated the price of the recipe. All prices include 3% food tax.*

Granola (Sharon Danneman)

$5.33 ($0.65 per cup) Without blueberries: $3.94 ($0.49 per cup)

Updated 3/2/13.

7.5 c quick oats
¼ c wheat germ or wheat bran (optional)
1 c oil
1 c honey
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c dried blueberries

Mix oats and oil together in a large bowl. Pour honey over the mixture and stir well. Mix in cinnamon and vanilla. Dump onto a greased cookie sheet and spread flat. Bake at 300° for 30 min. Stir. Bake 10 more minutes. Cool completely. Mix in blueberries and pour into cereal container. (I mix in the blueberries as I pour the granola into my cereal container.)

Note: you may want to use Beano when introducing lots of oats into your diet. :)

*Do these same first steps to make granola as well. (See recipe for peanut butter granola bars under "snacks"). Double the first 4 ingredients if making both granola and granola bars. Bake on two cookie sheets. Use one cookie sheet for granola; the other for granola bars. Only add cinnamon and vanilla to the half you are making into granola cereal.
