Orange Ginger Granola

I don’t have much to say about this except that its delicious. I woke up really early Sunday morning with a hankering to make something I’d never made before. After a few searches through the blogosphere, I fell upon Anja’s (Food for Thought) recipe for Orange Coconut Granola (which doesn’t seem to be loading right now). I modified it to what I had around the apartment, and what I like. Do the same and you’ll be pleased.

Orange Ginger Granola

1 c rolled oats
1/4 c wheat germ
1/4 c wheat bran
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup dried fruit, optional
zest of 1 orange
Juice of 1 orange (about 1/4 cup)
2 T honey
1 inch fresh ginger, grated
1/2 t cinnamon
a pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 225ºF.

In a saucepan combine honey, orange juice, orange zest, fresh ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Heat until honey is melted. Set aside.

Combine grains and nuts and berries. Toss together. Pour honey mixture over and toss until well combined. Pour mixture out onto baking sheet and spread out evenly. Heat in oven for about 1.5-2 hours, stirring occasionally until mixture is dry and crunchy. Allow to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
