How to Make Master Granola Recipe


  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position, and heat oven to 275 degrees. Coat a 9x13 aluminum pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  2. Mix oats, wheat germ, sugar, salt, chopped nuts, and coconut in a bowl.
  3. In a heavy saucepan over low heat bring syrup, oil, water and cinnamon to a simmer. Drizzle over oat mix, and stir to combine. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Working a handful at a time, squeeze cereal to form small clumps, about the size of a nickel.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. Stir in dried fruit. Continue to bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes longer. Let cool. Granola can be stored in an airtight container up to 2 weeks at room temperature.
