Granola is a healthy snack to have plain, with yogurt or with any type of milk. I’ve tried many recipes but I would have to rate this as one of the best! The great part of granola is you can add whatever nuts and dried fruit you like to make it your own.


1/8 cup flaxseeds

1 cup rye flakes

1 cup oat flakes

1 cup kamut flakes

1 cup wheat flakes

1 cup sliced raw nuts

1 cup spelt flakes

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup sucanat

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 cup canola oil

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 cup honey

pinch of salt

1 cup dried fruits – raisins, cranberries, blueberries


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. In a small pot on low heat mix honey, oil, vanilla, cinnamon and sucanat until it turns to liquid. Pour liquid over dry ingredients. Spread granola on a large tray with parchment paper. Bake for 45 – 60 minutes stirring frequently. Add dried fruits to granola mixture. Put in clear cellophane bag to give as a gift.
