Home » Recipes » Cereals » Nutty Oat Granola


  • 8 C. regular rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 C. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 C. regular wheat germ
  • 1 large pkg. (8 oz.) shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 C. salted cashews, chopped
  • 1/2 C. oil
  • 3/4 C. honey
  • 2 tsp. vanilla


  • Stir to blend oats, sugar, wheat germ, coconut and cashews. In a small pan, heat oil, honey and vanilla, stirring until bubbling. Thoroughly mix the liquids with the dry ingredients. Grease two large 10×15″ rimmed baking sheets, then divide cereal mixture between pans, spreading it out evenly. Bake uncovered in a 325 °F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until coconut is lightly browned, stirring two or three times with a wide spatula. Remove pans from oven; stir granola several times as it cools to prevent sticking. When thoroughly cool, store airtight.
  • Makes 16 cups.
