Add a healthy crunch to your breakfast with this delicious low-fat granola recipe."My friend's original recipe was full of nuts and seeds. I worked it over and used fruit to maintain the taste," says recipe author Roger Kisner. "It has less than half the fat of commercial granola at half the price. I eat it six days a week."

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place half the oats, sugar, and bran in each of 2 baking pans, 10 by 15 inches. With your hands, crumble sugar and mix ingredients well.

  • In a 1- to 2-quart pan over medium heat, stir oil, honey, and vanilla until bubbly. Pour half the hot mixture into each baking pan and mix well.

  • Bake, uncovered, in a 350° oven. After 10 minutes, stir granola mixture. If using 1 oven, switch pan positions. Continue baking until oats are lightly toasted, about 10 minutes more.

  • Stir in dried fruit, cranberries, and crystallized ginger, breaking up any clumps. Bake until oats are crisp, 5 to 10 minutes longer. Stir. Let cool 5 minutes and stir again. When cool, serve or store in an airtight container up to 1 month.
