Another Granola Recipe

I love granola!!

Here's another recipe that sounds really good too!

Homemade Granola

There is no wrong way to put together this recipe.

4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup bran cereal
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped nuts
1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup raisins

Spread the rolled oats on a cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 10 minutes. Stir together cereal, sugar, nuts and oil. Spread on a separate cookie sheet, and bake at 350F for 20 minutes, stirring twice during baking. Cool both sheets to room temperature. Mix oats, cereal mixture and raisins.

Note: Home made granola is easy to make, and can be like an experiment. Try adding different nuts, dried fruit, or cereals, almost any combination works well but you might be surprised by how the batch tastes. Have fun!

Granola can simply be eaten plain, with fresh fruit (which is how we usually enjoy it here); or it can be added to cookies, baked into bars, or used as a garnish atop ice cream or fruit crisps. It’s also a great hiking snack.

2 pounds (7 1/2 cups) thick oat flakes (rolled oats), uncooked
1 cup (2 to 2 1/4 ounces) shredded coconut—sweetened (or not), toasted (or not)
2 heaping cups (8 ounces), chopped or broken pecans, almonds, or walnuts
1 to 1 2/3 cups (5 to 8 ounces) hulled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup (3 3/8 ounces) vegetable oil
1 cup (10 3/4 ounces) maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 to 2 pounds mixed dried fruits of your choice (raisins, cranberries, apricots, pineapple, cherries, blueberries, apples, and dates are all good choices)

In a very large bowl, combine the oats, coconut, nuts, and seeds. Mix well. Drizzle the oil, syrup, and vanilla over the mixture in the bowl, and stir thoroughly, till everything is evenly moistened. Sprinkle on the salt, and stir and toss till everything is very well combined (your bare hands are the best tools for this step).

Spread granola into a couple of large, lightly greased roasting pans; it should be no more than about 3/4 inch thick in the pan. Bake in a preheated 300°F oven for 1 hour (or 275°F oven for 1 1/2 hours, or 250°F oven for 2 hours), tossing every 15 minutes or so. When the granola is done, it’ll be a light golden brown; it won’t seem particularly crisp, but will become crisp and crunchy as it cools. Remove the pans from the oven and cool completely. Transfer granola to a large bowl, and mix in the dried fruits. Store in a tightly closed container at room temperature. Yield: a scant 5 pounds of granola.

Crispy-Crunchy Granola Munchies

Originally posted b Songberries

Crispy-Crunchy Granola Munchies

From Emeril's Book, "There's A Chef In My Soup"

This not only makes a terrific snack but also doubles as an awesome breakfast cereal. Keep in mind that if you use salted nuts, you'll need to decrease the amount of salt used from a half teaspoon to a quarter teaspoon. And hey, substitute whatever nuts and dried fruits you like best. These Crispy-Crunchy Granola Munchies will keep up to 1 week at room temperature if stored in an airtight container-but I bet yours won't last that long!


1/3 cup honey
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup mixed nuts, including slivered almonds and coarsely chopped pecans and
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup hulled green pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raisins or golden raisins (or a combination of both)
1/4 cup dried cranberries or blueberries
1/4 cup dried banana chips
Measuring cups and spoons, cutting board, knife, small saucepan, large bowl, large wooden spoon, baking sheet, oven mitts or pot holders, fork, wire rack, large mixing bowl, airtight container

1. Make sure the oven rack is in the center position and preheat the oven to 325ºF.
2. Combine the honey and butter in a small saucepan. Heat on low heat and stir until melted. Remove from the heat.
3. Combine the oats, mixed nuts, coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and salt in a large bowl. Stir with a large wooden spoon to mix well.
4. Pour the honey butter over the oat mixture and stir until well combined. 5. Spread the granola evenly in a thin layer on a baking sheet.
6. Bake, stirring every 5 minutes with a wooden spoon to prevent the granola from sticking or burning, until fragrant and golden brown, about 20 minutes. (Do not overcook-the granola will crisp as it cools.)
7. Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the baking sheet from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. When completely cooled, transfer the granola to a large mixing bowl and stir in the dried fruit.
8. Transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.

An airtight container is important-this will keep your Crispy-Crunchy Granola Munchies fresh!
Makes 6 cups.

Be very careful when stirring the hot nut mixture!
