Serves 8


This crunchy, sweet granola makes a great topping for yogurt. Add dried blueberries to boost color and antioxidants.


  • 4 cups quick cooking (not instant) rolled oats
  • 2 cups natural wheat bran
  • 1 ½ cups chopped California walnuts
  • ½ cups liquid honey
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 1 ½ cups raisins (or dried cranberries, chopped dried apples, apricots or other mixed dried fruit)
  • Fresh fruit for garnish, as desired
  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 300F
    2. In a large bowl, stir together rolled oats, bran and walnuts.
    3. In a small microwaveable bowl, combine honey and vanilla; microwave on high for about 20 seconds or more until runny. Stir to mix; pour over dry ingredients and toss to coat well.
    4. Spread granola evenly in a large shallow baking pan and bake in 300F oven for about 30 minutes, or until golden, stirring two or three times.
    5. Cool completely; granola will crisp as it cools.
    6. Stir in raisins or other dried fruit; store in airtight container. Serves 8.
