Ah, I love granola. I go through spurts where I make it a lot and don't make it. There are so many different variations, and I make mine different every time. Here is today's creation:

3 c. oatmeal, about 10 oz (0.56)
3 T wheat germ (0.35)
3 T sesame seeds (0.15)
1/3 c. sweetened, shredded coconut (0.17)
1/4 c. sunflower seeds (0.10)
1/4 c. almonds, chopped, about 1.25 oz (0.35)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 T brown sugar (0.06)
1 banana (0.19)
1 T honey (0.06)
2 T canola oil (0.04)

Total: $2.03 for 4 cups (8 1/2-cup servings), or 0.25 per serving

Optional: Add 1/2 c. raisins (after cooling) for an additional 0.22, or 0.28 per serving.

Heat oil, honey, mashed ripe banana, and brown sugar in sauce pan until sugar dissolves.

Mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour wet over dry. Stir.

Spread in flat rimmed baking dish. Bake at 300F for 30-35 min, stirring once or twice, until desired golden brown-ness.

Keeps for a couple of weeks at room temperature.
