Honey Crunch Granola

I love granola. It's one of my favorite things to eat. I've tried several recipes for homemade granola and finally decided to make up my own. Yep, I did some experimenting. :-) I was really happy with the results, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you all!

Honey Crunch Granola
3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts & pecans)
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flaxseed (or whole)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup vegetable oil (or applesauce)
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.

In a small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well.

Spread the mixture in a 9x13 pan.

Cook 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown.

Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.


*You can also add mix-ins of your choice such as dried fruit and coconut. I like mine with coconut and dried cranberries.

Hi there. I assume you are the blogger from D----, GA that stopped by my blog. Just thought I'd mention that my husband is a fire fighter near there.

God bless!

What a great recipe made with honey and apple juice! Have you tried it with applesauce rather than oil? If it works, that's wonderful!!

Roadrunner201...I did stop by your blog, but I don't live in GA.

SnoWhite...I have tried it with applesauce and it did work. I do like it a little better with the oil though.

Made this granola this afternoon and it is FANTASTIC! I used 1/8 c. oil and 1/8 c. applesauce. It also made my house smell absolutely dreamy, too. Thanks again for another great recipe. (You totally have me hooked on granola now. I can't go a day without it.) :-)
