Ingredients

  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats 

  • 2 cups puffed brown rice 

  • 3/4 cup wheat bran 

  • 1/2 cup raw wheat germ 

  • 3 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds 

  • 3 tablespoons walnuts, chopped

  • 1/4 cup fat-free dry milk 

  • 3/4 cup dark honey 

  • 1/3 cup olive oil or canola oil 

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract 

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped

  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries, chopped

 

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 250�F. Have ready a large, heavy, nonstick baking sheet.

  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, puffed rice, wheat bran, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, walnuts, and dry milk. Stir until well blended.

  • In a small saucepan, stir together the honey and oil over medium-low heat until well blended. Don't let the mixture boil. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts.

  • Add the warm honey mixture to the dry ingredients and stir quickly until well combined. Spread the mixture evenly on the baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes to ensure even browning. Add the berries during the last 10 minutes of baking time and toss gently to mix.

  • Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack and let the granola cool completely.

  • Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator.
