This recipe has been adapted from several granola recipes in the "More-with- Less Cookbook". It is a cost effective recipe that I love to have on hand for our own breakfasts or to bring along with yogurt to share at a mom's group.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 3 cups mixed nuts and dried fruit (coconut, sunflower kernels, wheat germ, sesame seed, nuts, soy nuts, raisins)
  • 1 cup brown sugar or 1 cup honey
  • 34 cup oil (1/2 cup if using honey)


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients.
  3. Bring oil and sugar to a boil.
  4. Pour over dry ingredients and mix thoroughly and quickly to keep sugar from clumping. Mixing with hands can help with this.
  5. Spread on 2 greased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake about 30 minutes, stirring often.
  7. Allow to cool and then break into small pieces.
  8. Serve with milk, yogurt or over fresh fruit.
