    Yummo! Enjoy this by itself, as your cereal, with yogurt...


    • 4 cups rolled oats
    • 1 cup wheat germ
    • 1 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
    • ½ cup sesame seeds
    • ¼ cup brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    • 1/3 cup honey
    • 1/3 cup water or apple juice
    • 1 (6 ounce) package dried sweetened cranberries or other dried fruit like cherries, raisins, pineapple


    1. Heat oven to 300 degrees; in a large bowl stir together oats, wheat germ, nuts, sesame seeds, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.
    2. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the oil, honey, and water (juice). Toss the mixture until the ingredients are well combined then spread it evenly on a cookie sheet.
    3. Bake the granola for 45 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring – tossing every 10-15 minutes, keeping the mixture from sticking.
    4. Let it cool completely, then stir in the cranberries or dried fruit. I usually bake it longer because I like it a little more crunchy!
