Turtleback Farm Granola

Turtleback Farm Inn Granola is always available. We serve it everyday along with the fruit and juice. Many types of granola that are mass produced are too full of sugars and tropical oils. That's unfortunate, because it can be a very healthful food if prepared right. The taste of this granola stands alone, but we serve it with raisins and yogurt on the side. This dresses it up as well as adds further nutritional value.

4 cups rolled oats
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour (unbleached)
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup wheat germ
½ cup cornmeal
1 cup oil
1 Tablespoon honey
1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon salt (may be omitted)
Mix all ingredients well and spread into two 9 inch X 12 inch pans.
Bake at 300º, stirring often to prevent scorching, approximately 60-90 minutes or until nicely browned.
