Best Tasting Granola

Yield: 8 – ½ cup servings

Dry Ingredients:

• 4 cups slow cooking oats
• 2 cups mixed raw nuts and seeds (try hemp, sunflower, pumpkin, chopped
almonds and cashews) ideally previously soaked and/or sprouted
• ¼ cup wheat germ
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• ¼ tsp mineral salt

Wet ingredients:

• ½ cup melted butter
• ½ cup maple syrup or honey
• 1 tsp vanilla extract

Tasty variation:
Add ½ cup of raisins
Try adding 3 scoops of pumpkin seed protein powder for a good protein boost


Preheat oven to 320˚ F. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients; mix well
and set aside. In a sauce pan, on low heat, melt all wet ingredients (careful not to
burn). Take off stove when completely melted. Slowly pour wet ingredients over dry
ingredients, using a spatula to fold and evenly coat the dry mixture with the wet.
Spread on cookie sheet or in a glass pan and bake. Turn granola every 30 minutes
so it toasts evenly. Bake until granola is dry and golden (about 1 hr). Add in raisins
(optional) and store in glass container.
