Granola recipe

I've had so many requests for the granola recipe so here it is.
As Robyn says: it's full of fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids, plus it will totally clean you out! I double this recipe and make it in a big broiler pan with a lid.
Mix Well:
8 C rolled oats (not instant oats, which are a processed food)
1 C raw wheat germ (found in bulk at the health food store, high in B vitamins)
1 C shredded coconut (found in bulk also- not the sugar kind)
1/2 C freshly ground flax seed (grind fresh, in your high-powered blender)
1 1/2 C nuts (walnuts, pecans, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds)
1/4 C sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. cinnamon

Heat on the stove until barely melted, stirring together:
1/2 C honey (raw)
1/2 C molasses or Grade B maple syrup
1/2 C water
1/2 C extra virgin coconut oil
optional: 1 Tbsp maple flavoring or vanilla

Pour liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until distributed evenly (this takes a few minutes). Bake at 250 degrees, stirring well every 20 minutes for 45-90 minutes or until dry. Keep in the pantry for up to 2 weeks in cooler weather, or in the fridge for up to six weeks.

We add dried fruit and sprouted raw sunflower seeds the day we eat them.

To sprout sunflower seeds, cover 1/2 p. of sunflower seed with filtered water overnight, then drain in the morning. They are now living food with vastly more enzymes and nutrients. Here the link to her youtube video where she makes it.



  1. I love this recipe. Seriously gets my day off to a great start. Totally cleans you out.

  2. Do you serve this with almond milk or yogurt/kefir? Or just plain by itself?

  3. I eat it with rice milk because I like the thinner consistency almost like skim milk, my husband eats his with almond milk though. I'd really like to try it in kefir and make it almost like a yogurt parfait I just haven't yet.
