  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, almonds, walnuts, pecans, sesame seeds, wheat germ, coconut and sunflower seeds. In a small pan over medium heat, stir together the oil and honey. Cook and stir until blended. You could also do this in a large measuring cup in the microwave, heating for about 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Pour over the oat mixture, and stir to coat evenly. Spread out in an even layer on two cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the oats and nuts are toasted. Immediately after it comes out of the oven, stir in the raisins and dried cranberries. Let stand until cooled, and stir again to break up any large clusters. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks, but I guarantee it won't be around that long!

First of all, THANK YOU Veronica for this amazing recipe. I just made a 10x recipe and am giving it away as Christmas gifts. I have a few comments that may be of interest to others. (#1) as othe...

This granola is fantastic, I can't stop eating it!!! I added about 3 tsp cinnamon and 2 tsp of salt. The salt just brings out the flavors of all the nuts and the cinnamon spices it up just a b...

I made this last night and was very impressed! I've tried several granola recipes and this is the first one that actually worked like I wanted it too. I did change a few things- I omitted the ...

After trying a few different granola recipes that didn't deliver, I've settled on this one. I've made it several times, and will make it several more. While the recipe is great just as it is, ...

I LOVE IT! It's so yummy! I did do a bit of a change though. I only added 2 cups of the slivered almonds instead of all the other nuts to cut out on fat. I also sprinkled about 2 tbs of cinn...

So yummy - dangerously so! It makes a LOT, so you could halve the recipe and it would be fresh every time you eat it. I found it hard to fit it all on my baking sheets. I had to do it in batches.

As many reviewers said, this smells wonderful when baking. I made many of the same modifications - additional oats, cut the oil. Also added vanilla and flax seeds and substituted maple syrup f...

DELICIOUS. This recipe was a big hit at Easter family brunch. Everyone raved about it. Both of my sisters and my mom want a big jar of this for Mother's Day! I used dried blueberries instead...
