My family loves this granola! We usually mix about 1/4-1/3 cup of it in a smoothie for breakfast every morning because it tastes so great with the smoothie and it lasts us a couple of weeks this way. Tastes great on its own or mixed with your favorite cereal also. You can also add some raisins after its finished baking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix coconut, oats, wheat germ, salt, sugar, nuts, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add honey, vanilla, oil, and water.
  3. Mix well again squishing and compacting with both hands.
  4. Place granola on 2 cooking pans, can make some clumps and some flat, and cook at 150°C (300°F).
  5. Take granola out every 10-15 minutes to mix on pan so it doesn't burn.
  6. Cook until dry and has started to turn slightly brown throughout. Can take 1-2 hours (or more) to bake (I usually double the recipe and cook on 4 pans throughout the day to have more stored because of the long cooking time).

This granola came out wonderful! Mine baked for exactly 1 hour and came out nice and clumpy and full of flavor. Thanks so much for posting!

This is my first attempt at making homemade granola, and boy-o-boy, I'm hooked! My first attempt I had difficulty getting clumps, so I will work on that technique. My one request of Enjolinfam is to include the ingredient "wheat germ" with the others in step #1; I had already combined everything and placed my two trays in the oven before I realized that I had wheat germ still left on the counter! I took my trays back out of the oven and all went back into the mixing bowl! Thanks, Enjolinfam! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

I made this using maple syrup and added some cashews, flaxseed, sunflower seeds & pepitas. I used Splenda in place of sugar but didn't measure it, just eyeballed it and used a lot less than asked for. I've never done granola with water before & it works great, you don't have to use as much oil. Toddler DD & I both loved this!
