This was great!!!!!!!!! I made a huge batch of this stuff and put it in containers. I eat it by itself, as cereal or in vanilla yogurt. I cannot believe how good this stuff is and plenty of fiber too. If you like granola, you must try this recipe. Thank you so much, monstrah. I will make this one a keeper.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet. I use it almost every week (as soon as I get done with one batch). I put it in vanilla yogurt with strawberries or by itself with raisins. Scrumptious!! Additional note: I just made it again this morning, and I was out of wheat germ. I put in 1/2 cup of oat bran and 1/2 cup chocolate malt-o-meal. From initial taste testings : ) it is going to be very good.

Loved by my whole family. I changed couple of things. I use grapeseed oil instead of butter, and use 1kg oats and 2cups coconut. Adjust liquids a bit. I also use a bit more cinnamon and vanilla. Definitely a winner. (I also leave out raisins and nuts as not everyone likes that, but it still tastes wonderful if added afterwards.)
