Crunchy Granola

Mind you I'm not partial to granolas so this one HAS to be real good to make it into my blog.  Also, I got this recipe from an industrial kitchen so it's written to make 66 cups, so if you just want to make  it for yourself you'll have to cut the ingredients down.

Crunchy Granola
I've always hated granolas until I tried this one.
Dry ingredients:
  • 28 cups of quick oats
  • 6 cups of wheat germ
  • 6 cups of coconut
  • 3 cups of sunflower seeds
  • 3 cups of sesame seeds
  • 4 cups of chopped walnuts
  • 4 cups of chopped almonds
  • 4 cups of carob chips (optional)
  • 6 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. of salt
  • 2 Tbsp. of vanilla
  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of oil
1, Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
2, Blend brown sugar, salt, vanilla, water & oil in a blender.
3, Combine wet & dry ingredients together.
4, Bake for one hour or until golden brown. (convection oven - 250 degrees/gas oven - 275 degrees)  Turn over every 15 - 20 minutes to expose areas not yet browned.
5, Take out of the oven & mix in the carob chips while the granola is still hot.  
Note: Freeze when not in use.


  1. Now THAT looks delicious. Like you, never been a big granola fan but I'm going to try this! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I hope you enjoy it. I do recommend that you try it with the carob (or chocolate) chip option, it's so much nicer that way.
