Lisa's Granola

recipe from Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary

Lisa’s Homemade Granola

In a large bowl mix:

4 cups rolled oats (not instant)

1 cup wheat germ

1 cup nuts (walnuts of almonds, whatever nut you like!)

¼ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

6 – 8 ounces dried fruit. I just eye the fruit really.

Go wild! Cranberries, dates, coconut, raisin, pineapple, papaya. Anything goes!


Mix together:

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup honey

1/3 water


Heat the oven to 300. In a large bowl stir together the oats, wheat germ, nuts, sugar, salt and dried fruit. Mix the oil, honey and water together and pour over oat mixture. Stir to coat. Line a sheet pan with parchment and spread the mixture evenly onto the pan.


Place the granola in the oven and set the timer for 10 minutes. Remove and stir and return to the oven for another 10. Repeat this 2 times. Granola will bake for a total of 40 minutes. Let cool completely and store in glass jar or airtight container. Makes about 7 cups.
