Granola is great eaten as cereal, sprinkled on applesauce, or parfaited (that's a word, right?) with yogurt and berries.  Mix and match your add ins to make it how YOU want it!


8 cups regular oats
1 pkg dried mixed berries (about 6 oz)
1 cup sweet shredded coconut
1/2 cup wheat germ
4 oz sliced almonds
1/2 cup canola oil
2/3 cup honey
2 Tablespoons vanilla

That is the original recipe.  It can be switched up many ways.  My photos reflect a granola made without the berries, coconut, or almonds.  I instead used pecans and left out the others.  You can add milled flax, raisins, craisins, walnuts, whatever your heart/taste desires!

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separate the mix together.  Make sure all the dry ingredients are coated well.  Dump onto 2 large jelly roll pans.  Bake for 20-30 minutes at 325 degrees stirring every 5-10 minutes.   If you don't stir, parts of it will want to burn. 
Your granola should be a nice golden brown.  It will still seem sticky but will dry out as it cools.  As it cools I continue to stir it now and then. We store in the cupboard in a half gallon jar.  
My husband eats his with our homemade vanilla goat yogurt and frozen blueberries.


  1. G'day! Never made granola either Jenny! Healthy!
    Cheers! Joanne
