Here is a GREAT recipe for granola. Eat it over lowfat vanilla yogurt (trader joe's is excellent) with fresh berries. You could even get fancy and layer it in parfait fashion.
4 cups oatmeal
2 cups flaked coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
Mix with hands
3/4 cup vegetable oil (you can reduce this to 1/2)
1/2 cup honey
Mix oil and honey into dry mixture. Spread out onto a baking sheet and bake at 350° for 20 minutes, stirring twice. When done baking, add raisins, dried apricots, pecans, etc. (I like mine with pecans and raisins, but it's great plain, too).
Store in an airtight container.
