i love granola and my family likes it pretty well too. i started making it about a year ago, but just made it with wheat germ for the first time this week. if you've never bought wheat germ, i found it on the cereal aisle with the oatmeal...i'll save you the time i spent scouring the baking aisle. :) we like our granola pretty basic around here, so there's not a whole lot to this recipe.
