 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 c Quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1 c Shredded coconut
  • -(unsweetened, from a health
  • -food store)
  • 1/3 c Untoasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 c Hulled sesame seeds
  • 4 tb Margarine
  • 1/4 c (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • -(omit salt if using
  • - salted margarine)
  • 1 1/2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c Toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 c Raisins


Preheat the oven to 300~.

Spread the oatmeal, coconut, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds in a large,
lightly buttered roasting pan or ovenproof dish (about 11x17 inches is
best, although a smaller pan will do). Bake for about 20 minutes, tossing
several times.

Meanwhile, combine in a small saucepan the margarine, brown sugar, honey
and salt and bring to a simmer, stirring. Add the vanilla off the heat.

Reset the oven to 350~ then add the wheat germ to the toasted mixture.
Dribble the sugar-honey mixture syrup over the granola, tossing with a fork
to coat the dry mixture evenly.

Return the pan to the oven and bake for 5-6 minutes longer. Add the
raisins, toss to distribute, and press the granola down firmly into an even
layer. Bake 5 minutes or so longer, or until the granola is golden.

Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Slip a flexible spatula under
the granola to break in to large pieces. Let cool completely and store

Makes 6 cups.
