Almond Crunch Granola Cereal

Pin It
I love granola, but when store bought it is usually high in calories and expensive. This recipe is loaded with fiber (11 grams) and good fats, so will keep you full all morning long. Mix with yogurt or eat with milk. Makes 18 cups!

In a large bowl combine:

10 cups regular rolled oats


10 cups 6 grain oats

(I used grains this time, I like them best)

Find them at (Emergency Essentials)

"Six Grain Oats" 25 lbs/$31.20

To the oats, add:

2 cups sliced raw almonds

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw sesame seeds

2/3 cup olive oil or canola oil

3/4 cup real maple syrup

1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

5 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Spread thinly on 2 large cookies sheets, which have been sprayed lightly with non-stick spray.

Now here's the tricky part. I have made this recipe several many times and found it turns out best if you bake at 325 degrees for a total of 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

Stay close to the oven until granola is lightly browned.

Stir one more time and then let cool.

Store in an air tight container. If you like raisins, this is a good time to add them. There is nothing worse then a hard-as-a-rock raisin!
