  • 4 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup nuts or seeds (try a combo such as sunflower or sesame seeds and walnuts)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 cup assorted, chopped dried fruit such as apricots, apples or figs
  • 2 Tbs canola oil
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Coat a 9x13-inch (23x33cm) pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix together oats, bran, germ, nuts and cinnamon.
  • Blend honey, canola oil and juice. Add mixture to oats and stir until well-coated.
  • Spread granola onto a baking sheet and cook 25 minutes, stirring a few times so that granola browns evenly. Remove from oven and let the granola cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.
  • Add dried fruit when mixture cools. Store in an air-tight container.
