This is by far the best granola recipe I have ever made. I used one called 'Harvest Granola' that came with my dehydrator, but this one easilly comes out better. I was skeptical about using such a large amount of ingredients in the recipe, but I am very pleased with the results. I definitely recommend everyone try this recipe. Next time I'm going to use raisins that I dehydrated at home. I also used only raisins in this (because I had no prunes or dried cranberries at home) I assume by 'pat flakes' you mean oatmeal. (I'm not familliar with the term)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pat flakes, sunflower seeds, almonds, sesame seeds, and flax seeds.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the oil, carob powder, cinnamon, sweetener, and salt.
  4. Add this mixture to the large bowl and combine well.
  5. In a lasagna pan or two flat cookie sheets, spread mixture evenly and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the top layer is browned (if you use cookie sheets, bake 12-15 minutes).
  6. Flip over with spatula and bake for another 8-10 minutes, then remove from oven.
  7. The mixture will be moist, but will dry and harden as it cools.
  8. Mix in dried fruit ingredients and let cool, stirring every 10 minutes to prevent clumping.
  9. Store in air-tight containers.
  10. Serve with fresh fruit and soy milk.
