  • Yield: about 10 cups
  • Cook time:1 Hour, 10 Minutes
  • Prep time:13 Minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups uncooked regular oats
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup whole natural almonds
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or blueberries
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 3/4 cup dried organic coconut flakes


Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in orange rind, cinnamon, and vanilla.

While syrup cooks, toss together oats and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl until blended. Pour syrup over oat mixture, and stir until coated. Using hands coated with butter-flavored cooking spray, very firmly press oat mixture into a large lightly greased rimmed baking sheet.

Bake at 275° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until toasted and browned (do not stir). Let cool completely in pan.

Toss together cherries and next 3 ingredients in large bowl. When granola is cool, break apart into chunks, and gently stir into dried fruit and coconut. Store granola in airtight jars up to 5 days.
