Homemade Granola

Course: Breakfast
Author: Ann Timm


  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut sweetened if desired
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts soaked if desired
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Heat oven to 250 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix flour, oats, coconut, wheat germ, walnuts, flax seed, and cinnamon.
  • In a small saucepan over low heat, mix water, coconut oil, honey, molasses, vanilla, and salt; heat until coconut oil melts completely.
  • Stir together; pour over dry ingredients and mix until very well combined.
  • Pour mixture onto two greased cookie sheets (or jellyroll pans, a cookie sheet with sides) and bake 1 hour to 1.5 hours (depending whether you like your granola softer or crunchier), or until dry and golden brown. Watch after one hour to prevent burning.


Recipe from Real Food for the Real Homemaker, page 66A small amount (about 1/3 cup) with milk is enough for a filling breakfast. Trywarming the granola and milk for a comforting hot cereal, or eating the granola with homemade yogurt (see page 78 in our cookbook) and fresh fruit.
