2 lbs rolled oats
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
3/4 cup pumpkin seeds, whole
3/4 cup hulled seame seeds, toasted or raw
1/2 cup powdered low fat soy milk
2 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 cup rice syrup or other natural sweetener
Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl and mix. Add the powdered milk and mix again.
Then add the oil and syrup and mix thoroughly, using your hands to turn the mixture over and over.
Place into baking pans and bake in a slow (250F) oven for 45 minutes to an hour until it is golden brown. Stir every 10 to 15 minutes.
Let cool completely before storing in an air-tight container. If you add wheat germ, the granola must be refrigerated.
Additional Ingredients (use vegan versions): Powdered soy milk or flakes, peanuts, wheat germ, bran, oat, rye, wheat or soy flakes, soy nuts, raisins, currants or other dried fruits, almonds or other nuts.
Note: If you add soy flakes, be sure to include them at the very end of baking as they tend to burn.
