I have found this recipe is pretty forgiving.  I have used less brown sugar and unsweetened coconut to make it less sweet but when I do make it too sweet, it's a great dessert :)  I have also left out seeds and/or nuts when I didn't have them.  I am not a fan of raisins but I put dried strawberries from my garden in my granola and I think it's great!

From the kitchen of:

Katy Nieto (though originally from a friend a long time ago).


6 c. oatmeal (rolled or quick)

1/2 c. br. sugar

3/4 c. wheat germ

1/2 c. flaked coconut

1/4 c. seeds (sesame, sunflower, whatever you have/like)

1 c. chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, whatever you like/have)

1/2 c. dried milk (optional)


2/3 c. honey

2/3 c. veg. oil

2 T. water

1 t. vanilla


1 c. dried fruit (cranberries, raisins, whatever you like)


Oven temp: 300 degrees

Baking time: 30-35 min.

Mix first 7 ingredients in a LARGE bowl.  Mix next 4 ingredients separately and then add to dry.  Turn onto 2 LARGE shallow pans.  Stir every 10 minutes during baking.  Bake until lightly toasted.  Stir occasionally while cooling.  Crumble.  Add dried fruit.  Store in air tight container (though I just store in the freezer - it keeps it fresh forever and it's not like it freezes together, you have already crumbled it).
