I have used the following recipe for Granola for many years - it is both kid- and adult-approved. It does contain honey as many recipes for Granola do to keep the rolled oats from tasting like sawdust. I think you may like this one. I have also made it up and packaged for Christmas treats. It follows:
Spread oats on jelly roll pan. Toast in 350 degree oven 10 minutes, stirring once. Stir in coconut, nuts, and wheat germ. Combine honey, oil and vanilla. Drizzle over cereal mixture, blending well. Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 mins, stirring twice, until gently browned. Remove from oven, stir in dried fruit (apples, strawberries, prunes, dates, apricots, etc). cool - store in covered jars in cool place. May be refrigerated or frozen.
