Here's the granola I've been making. I'll give it in its most general form.
6 cups grain (oats, barley, whatever)
3 c liquid (some combination of milk, "milk," and water)
4 Tbs something acidic (yogurt, lemon juice, ACV)
1 C oil (coconut oil, butter)
1 C sweet stuff (honey, syrup, molasses, sugar)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla if desired
spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc)
optional add-ins: peanut butter, dried coconut
Soak the first three ingredients together in a non-reactive bowl overnight. Melt the rest of the ingredients together and mix with the grain. Spread in thin layers on oiled cookie sheets. Dry in a 170 to 180 degree oven for several hours. Flip and separate the mush so that it dries in chunks. Keep in an airtight container.
We like it a lot with Sally Fallon "Crispy Nuts" on top, which yield to the tooth with about the same willingness as granola. Those are easy to make: soak nuts overnight with acid and water, and dry just as you do granola.
