Crunchy Spice Granola

Cooking Light
I've searched a long time for a tasty granola without added fat. After years of experimenting, I came up with my own. One batch should last awhile in an airtight container.
8 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)

3 cups regular oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup honey
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 (6-ounce) jar pear baby food
1 cup wheat bran flakes cereal with raisins
1 cup crisp cross of corn and rice cereal
1/3 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flaked coconut
1/4 cup chopped dates
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.

Spread first three ingredients on a jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven.

Reduce oven temperature to 250°.

Combine honey and next 5 ingredients (honey through baby food) in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute.

Combine oat mixture, honey mixture, bran flakes, and next 5 ingredients (bran flakes through dates); stir well. Spread mixture on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 250° for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container.

Note: Sprinkle over yogurt, fresh fruit slices, or frozen yogurt as a quick topping.
