Great tasting granola sweetened with honey. A very versatile recipe as your favorite nuts and dried fruit can easily be substituted for those listed.

I've been testing several granola recipes lately. This one is my favorite! I do make some changes, and like the recipe description says, it's very versatile! I use 1/2 cup flax seed (the miracle grain, as I call it) and omit the wheat germ and sunflower seeds. I use 1/2 cup sliced almonds and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. I also add 1 tsp. vanilla extract. I love the nutmeg and cinnamon - it smells so good baking! For cost reasons, I only use raisins and dried cranberries for the fruit. I end up baking mine for almost 40 minutes until it is toasted and crunchy. It clumps up very nicely. Hint: stir the oil and honey together first before adding to oat mixture.


Very good granola. I quadrupled the recipe but only made 2 1/2x the syrup (oil and honey). I combined all the dry ingredients (except for the dry fruit and placed it in the oven for about 20 minutes to toast them up. I combined the oil and honey in a saucepan with the cinnamon and a pinch of salt and brought it to a boil. This thinned out the honey and made it easier to pour over all the dry ingredients. I added the dried fruit 1/2 way thru the baking so they would not burn. I needed to bake the granola for much much longer than suggested. But it was very good.

I have been following & making this reciped for 3 months now. My only modification is to half the recipe (since I'm the only one who eats it) and omit the sunflower seeds (not a fan). Otherwise, I have memorized this recipe and eat it mixed w/what ever at least 5 days a week!
