Granola

Today I made Granola from my favorite cookbook: Mega Cooking by Jill Bond.
Here is the recipe for you.

2x 4x Ingredients
2 4 9×13 pans
12 24 Servings
1 cup 2 cups Cooking oil
1 cup 2 cups Honey
12 oz can 2- 12oz cans Concentrated frozen juice, thawed
10 cups (2 lbs) 20 cups (4 lbs) Old-fashioned oats
1 cup 2 cup Powdered milk
1 cup 2 cups Creamy peanut butter (optional for granola bars/chunks)

 

1 cups 2 cups Seeds
1 cups 2 cups Raisins or dehydrated fruit
1 cups 2 cups Nuts (walnuts, peanuts, pecans, almonds)

 

Prepare pans w waxed paper or Teflon liners. Optional.

In a large tub measure the dry ingredients. I use a clean dry dish tub that has never been used for anything besides mixing dry baking ingredients.

In a large measuring cup, measure the oil, then add the honey.

In a saucepan, heat the oil, honey, and juice until warm and well blended. Do not boil.

Pour the liquids over the oats, stirring as your pour and until well coated.

Spread the granola mixture across the bottom of the prepared pans. Press firmly for granola bars/chunks.

 

Bake at 250 F for 1 hour.

Rotate the pans if using more than one.

Bake for another hour. Stir to break up clumps IF desired.

Rotate the pans and bake 30-60 more minutes or until golden brown and no moisture is visible.

Divide, store, and freeze any that you will not be eating within 1 week.
