    MissTenacity's Note:

    A little bit sweet, a little bit fresh and invigorating. Adapted from a higher-fat recipe (this cuts the fat in half with no loss in flavor). It is a somewhat "dry" granola, due to the low amount of oil. Add more fruit juice to make it "clump up" when baking.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 250°F.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl or small vat combine the oats, germ, nuts, and brown sugar.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, combine honey, oil, lemon stuff, powdered/grated ginger, and salt.
    4. 4
      Combine both mixtures- tossing very very well (for 3-5 minutes) to distribute the goo evenly and pour onto as many sheet pans as you can find.
    5. 5
      Bake for 90 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.
    6. 6
      About halfway through the process your kitchen and house will start to smell heavenly and your mouth will be watering.
    7. 7
      While the granola is baking, chop the candied ginger down to "raisin" size or smaller- this is a pain as it is very sticky, and it doesn't work well in the food processor, unfortunately.
    8. 8
      Remove granola from oven and transfer into a large bowl.
    9. 9
      Add candied ginger and mix until evenly distributed.
    10. 10
      Makes a whole boatload.
    11. 11
      Keeps- probably a month, but it won't take you that long to eat it, will it?

      I made this and it came out very dry. I didn't think there was enough wet ingredients to make it crunch up. Also it didn't taste that lemony. Like the last reviewer the candied ginger did make it

      I didn't have the lemon extract but this was still very good. The candied ginger makes the recipe, but it does tend to clump together.
