- 3 cups dry oatmeal
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup wheat germ
First melt the butter in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the honey and salt and briefly heat with the butter. Turn off the heat and add the oatmeal and wheat germ. Stir.
Pour the mixture onto a cookie sheet. Spread the mixture out evenly and bake it at 375° for 10 minutes. It will be a golden brown color. Remove from the oven and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
***If you want to try the Peanut Butter version, add a 1/2 cup of Peanut Butter to the pot while you heat the butter and honey. Then add a tablespoon of cocoa with the oats and wheat germ. You will have to cook the granola for a little longer in the oven. (I cooked it an extra 5 minutes but it still needed a little more.)
