This week, we’re celebrating back to school with a healthy and easy breakfast idea: Granola. This recipe came from a good friend of mine, Mary Long. She said it is a family favorite. After making it myself, I totally agree! Enjoy!

2 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup wheat germ – unsweetened
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup apricots, chopped (optional)

Mix dry ingredients (except the raisins and apricots). Combine honey and oil and stir into dry ingredients. Bake at 300 degrees for 45-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Add fruit and cool.

  1. the taste is fantastic,but i thought it would be dry or just sticky enough to cut into bars. it is a sticky wad. What did i do wrong? Bake it more or add more oats? I thought I pretty much followed amounts(other than no wheat germ). Any help will be appreciated.

  2. Well, I’m not sure what happened! Did you stir the mixture every 15 minutes throughout the cooking? It could be that leaving out the wheat germ messed up the ratio of wet to dry ingredients. I would try either making it with wheat germ or using an extra 1/2 cup oats.
    Hope this helps!
    Happy baking,
