"My daughter and I came up with this recipe and it is absolutely wonderful. Several of my children who typically don't care for granola, loved it. I've tried many granola recipes and this tops them all. Enjoy!"

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment or aluminum foil.
  2. Combine the oats, wheat germ, oat bran, sunflower seeds, almonds, pecans, and walnuts in a large bowl. Stir together the salt, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat. Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until crispy and toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through. Cool, then stir in the raisins or cranberries before storing in an airtight container.

There is a slight mistake on the recipe. My original calls for 1 Tablespoon (not teaspoon) of cinnamon and 1 Tablespoon of vanilla.

I followed the recipe and cooked it at 315 deg F. Wow - it burned black in 4 minutes. I know my oven cooks on the hot side, but I think the temp you have must be wrong. The small part that su...

I have been making this granola recipe for over a year now and am finally getting to writing a review...WONDERFUL!!! I find it too sweet if I use the honey, brown ugar and maple syrup. I omit t...

Wow! Thanks for the recipe. By far the best granola I have ever had. I eat it 5 or 6 times a week - as cereal, mixed with yogurt or as a dry snack. For variations, try one or all of the foll...

This recipe tasted wonderful! My only complaint is that it doesn't explain very much for a novice. This was my first time making granola, and I burned the first couple batches because I kept e...

This recipe is great. I did modify quantities, using 10 cups of rolled oats (to match the size of the packaging), omitted the almonds, added unsweetened coconut, and increased the pecans and wal...

This is my first try at homemade granola. This recipe is easy and -- from the little tastes I took along the way -- yummy. BUT! There is a fine line between "toasted" and burnt. My granola is ...

I make this all the time because it magically vanishes in our house!! This is addictive! The proportions work very well, and of course, substitutions are easily made. I use whatever nuts we have...

The organic, nutty, rustic flavor is perfect. I love this recipe. It's the first time I've made granola and I was very pleased. Here's some thoughts: 1) Buying all the ingredients is expensive,...
