  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, wheat germ, walnuts, almonds, and dried cranberries. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Drizzle over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat evenly. Spread the mixture out in a thin layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes to toast evenly. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Granola will become crunchier as it cools.

This was a very easy granola recipe, and it tastes better than any granola I have purchased! I added sunflower seeds since I had some on hand. YUMMY!

I wasn't going to make this because I didn't think there was any way it could be that much better than store-bought granola to make it worth the extra effort. Even right after making it, I was ...

This was good! I only used about a cup of honey, and it was sweet enough for me. If you like bigger clumps of granola, try pressing it down into the pan before you bake it, and don't stir it w...

Flavor was good but DO NOT put cranberries in before you cook. They turn out dry and hard.

I was very happy with the way this turned out. I've made granola before, but other recipes I've tried took a lot more time and made a big mess. This was really simple and it came out great. I ...
