Homemade Granola

Print Friendly and PDF

When my kids were growing up, I would make large batches of homemade granola, and we would munch on it all day long. It is addicting. You can add any chopped nuts or dried fruit to this. Pictured here are my two amazing kids, Stephen and Michelle.

2-1/2 cups oats (old-fashioned, not instant)
1 cup dried shaved coconut (1/4" strips from Whole Foods)
½ cup chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts
¼ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup raw sunflower seeds
½ cup wheat germ
½ cup honey
½ cup canola oil
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup raisins or dried cranberries (add after baking)

Mix everything but the raisins or cranberries. Bake in a large roasting pan at 325 degrees for 30-45 min. until golden brown. Cool. Then add the dried fruit.
