|Adding everything to my Kitchen-Aid|
|Thoroughly mixed. (Do you notice my mess?)|
*6 cups old fashioned oats
*2 cups whole wheat flour
*1 cup chopped almonds
*1 cup ground flaxseed
*1/4 cup soy protein isolate
*1/2 cup brown sugar
*1 1/2 tsp. salt
*1 cup water or juice
*1 Tb. vanilla extract
1. Combine all ingredients and mix by hand or like I do with my Kitchen Aid stand mixer.
2. Dry granola mixture in a food dehydrator or bake on two cookie sheets in a low-temp oven (170 F) until thoroughly dried.
Yields about 13 cups of granola.
1. Add coconut to mixture before baking or diced dried fruit to dried/baked granola.
2. Add more brown sugar or other sweetener.
3. Add more liquid for chunkier granola.
4. The soy protein isolate may be omitted.
|Dried granola. It actually took two pans.|
1. Since ground flaxseed is more prone to oxidation and spoilage, I always buy it whole. I usually grind the flaxseed in my Vitamix Vita Prep 3 right before use.
2. I grind whole wheat berries in my Vitamix Vita Prep 3 right before use since whole wheat flour begins to spoil almost immediately after grinding.
3. Again, I chopped the almonds in my Vitamix Vita Prep 3, too.
