The World's Greatest Granola

I've been eating this granola almost daily for what seems like years now, so I figured I'd put the recipe up. I should note that this is not exactly my recipe—the original is on—but I did make a few crucial adjustments to the sugar and oil (both far too much in the original recipe).

Here it is:



Grains and Nuts
  • 350g Oats
  • 90g Wheat Germ
  • 85g Oat Bran
  • 65g Sunflower Seeds
  • 65g Chopped Pecans
  • 50g Almonds
  • 60g Walnuts
Sugar, Spices and Fat
  • 9g Salt
  • 25g Sugar
  • 25g Molasses
  • 25g Maple Syrup
  • 40g Honey
  • 50g vegetable oil
  • 4g Cinnamon
  • 6g Vanilla Extract
  • 135g Sweetened Dried Cranberries (I always put these in, or alternatively some chocolate chips)


  1. Mix together the grains and nuts in a huge bowl.
  2. Mix together the sugars, spices and fat in a sauce pan
  3. Bring sugar mixture to a boil. Boil gently for about a minute, stirring constantly.
  4. Pour sugar mixture over dry ingredients and mix thoroughly
  5. Bake on baking sheets in 325-degree oven for 20 minutes, stirring in the middle
  6. Cool and add optional ingredients
