- 4 C. rolled oats
- 1 C. wheat germ or oat bran
- 1/4 C. untoasted sesame seeds
- 1/3 C. honey or maple syrup
- 2 Tbs. safflower oil
- 1/2 C. chopped pecans
- 1 C. dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees and lightly grease one or two baking sheets. Combine oats, wheat germ, and sesame seeds in a bowl. Combine the honey and oil in a small container. Drizzle into the oat mixture and stir until evenly coated.
Spread on baking sheets. Bake, stirring every 10 minutes or so, until golden brown. This should take about 20 to 30 minutes. Allow the granola to cool on the baking sheets, then stir in cranberries. When completely cool, store in jars. They can keep up to 2 months in a cool, dry place.
