Homemade Crunchy Granola Recipe
What you’ll need:
- 4 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup wheat germ
- 1 cup chopped walnuts or slivered almonds
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup water 1 (6-ounce) package dried sweetened cranberries or other dried fruits, such as cherries, raisins, pineapple, or papaya
How to make it:
- Heat the oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, wheat germ, nuts, sesame seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the oil, honey, and water. Toss the mixture until it is well combined, then spread it evenly on a cookie sheet.
- Bake the granola until lightly browned, about 35 – 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to keep the mixture from sticking. Let it cool completely, then stir in the cranberries or dried fruit. Makes about 7 cups.
