About this Recipe

Whether a hearty bowl or sprinkled on your after-dinner sweet, this granola is crispy, crunchy and tasty!



Prep wet & dry ingredients

  • In large bowl, toss together oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
  • In medium bowl, toss together golden raisins and dried cranberries.
  • In medium saucepan, stir together honey, canola oil, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt and ½ cup water.
  • Place over medium heat and stir until honey and brown sugar have dissolved, about 3 minutes. Do not let mixture simmer or boil.


Combine wet & dry ingredients

  • Add three-fourths of honey mixture to bowl with oat mixture; stir well. Oats should feel wet but there should not be extra liquid in bowl; add a few tablespoons more oats if needed.
  • Add remaining honey mixture to bowl with dried fruits; let stand for 10 minutes.


Preheat oven & bake granola

Stir granola every 30 minutes

Add candied ginger & cool

  • After baking for a total of 1½ hours, let granola cool to room temperature. If nuts and oats are crunchy, granola is done. If they are chewy, bake at 300°F for 15 minutes more.

  • Store granola in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
