How to make it

  • In large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, brown sugar(if using), salt and nuts.
  • In small saucepan, combine 2-3T water, honey and oil and cook to boiling. Add "flavorings"(spices, zest and extracts), reduce heat and simmer about 3 minutes.
  • Carefully pour over oat mixture, reserving about 1/3 of the honey mixture.
  • Toss to coat.
  • Run hands under cool water and, with wet hands, pick up handfuls of mixture and lightly "press" together and carefully drop on sprayed cookie sheet.
  • Continue with remaining mixture. This technique will create the tasty granola "clumps" in the finished mix. If you don't want those, just dump the oat mixture on the sheet. :)
  • Keep bowl handy :)
  • Bake at 250 for about 30 minutes, carefully stirring after 15.
  • Remove sheet from oven, let cool a couple minutes til able to handle and carefully put back into original bowl.
  • Add dried fruit and remaining honey mixture and 2-3T water and toss to mix.
  • Once again, with wet hands, drop handfuls of mixture back to cookie sheet, as above.
  • Continue to bake about 15 minutes more, until fruits start to plump and granola is golden brown.
  • **the granola pictured is made with chopped pecans and dried cherries, cranberries, and blueberries, and the cream on top is sour cream mixed with nutmeg and vanilla***

    It seems like you've been reading my mind, K. I'll bet this would work with yogurt. What do you think?

    Ok rave would be way to long if I were to start! This is fantastic! The best granola ever...will never buy store bought again. My flavor combo was chopped pecans, slivered almonds, orange zest and dried cranberries. This recipe is a 10....thanks Keni!
