Home Made Granola

This makes one VERY large batch….for smaller families, simply half all the ingredients.
GREAT eaten as a cereal, stirred into yogurt, or as a topping on thawed frozen berries. Even place in snack size ziploc baggies and use as a quick grab and go snack.


  • 6 cups large flake oats
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup raw slivered almonds
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup wheat bran
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • cinnamon
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup chopped dates
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl combine all the ingredients EXCEPT for the salt, dried fruit and nut butter.
  • Distribute evenly amongst the two lined baking sheets and toast until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile mix together salt, dried fruit and peanut butter in a large bowl, add toasted mixture and combine well.
  • Pour mixture back onto baking sheets and press down evenly.( I like to moisten my fingers to keep them from sticking to the mixture).
  • Return to oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes until golden brown.
  • Cool completely and place in a airtight container – (I like keep it in the fridge).
