Mike's Granola

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by MajKaj

This is my adaption of many other Granola recipes, especially "Healthy Granola" #100464. I like my granola to have crunchy clusters. I achieve these clusters by briefly cooking the granola on the stove, then baking.

Very good granola! I made a few changes: halved the recipe, used oat bran, 1 cup walnuts and 1 cup pecans, 1 cup raisins and 1 cup orange flavored cranberries. I also added a little bit of ginger, but left out the millet, seeds, and almonds (didn't have them, but will add the seeds next time!). I love eating this plain by the handful!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300.
  2. Mix together the water, oil, maple syrup and vanilla in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large soup pot, mix together the remaining ingredients except for the raisins.
  4. Pour the water mixture into the soup pot.
  5. Cook on the stove top on medium to medium low heat, constantly mixing, for about 5 minutes. When the mixture starts to form gluey clumps remove from stove.
  6. Spread out mixture on two cookie sheets very lightly sprayed with oil. Cook for 60 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until the granola is dry and lightly golden in color.
  7. Remove from oven;allow to cool. Mix in raisins.
