Super Easy and Yummy Granola

Anthony and I love to have granola for breakfast, and Abiline likes it when she gets to eat it out of our bowls. Here is a recipe for a tasty concoction I made a few days ago. It only lasted two breakfasts, so it must have been good!

2 c. crispy rice cereal
3 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. wheat germ
1/2 c. maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
1/4 c. canola oil
1/3 c. sunflower seed butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 350. Mix the cereal, oats, and wheat germ in a large bowl. Heat the maple syrup, oil, and sunflower seed butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until combined and gooey. Add the vanilla and the salt, and then pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir until everything is evenly moistened. Spread the granola on a large baking sheet and bake for 10 mins, then stir and bake for another 10 mins, or until looking a little brown on the edges of the pan. You can add any dried fruit you like, or even chocolate chips, but we actually didn't think it needed any extras.
