This is a recipe that I received from an Amish woman in the Swartzentruber Amish settlement of Sinking Spring, Ohio. If you want your house to smell amazing and have a great snack to boot, you'll want to try this delicious, easy recipe for your own homemade granola cereal. Most of these recipes are ones that the average Amish cook would stock up on at her local Amish-owned bulk food store. Many Amish in this area have their own beehives so the addition of their own Ohio honey to the recipe would add a sweet, clovery flavor. So it's important to try to use some really good honey in this recipe.
This cereal is great as a snack or stirred into some homemade (or store-bought) yogurt. Yum!
This is a photo of the large jar of homemade granola cereal in their kitchen. This is a pretty no frills recipes (but delicious), but if you're like me you might want to experiment by adding proportional amounts of chocolate chips or marshmallows (or both!:)
