I grew up on this granola recipe. I certainly didn’t appreciate it then the way I do now! I don’t make it as often as I like, but when I do it’s such a treat.

Of course, growing up in a family the size of mine the recipe is in lbs (4 lbs of oats, 1/2 lb of coconut…you get the idea). So I pared it down for a perfect, one large cookie sheet recipe. Here you go.

MamaJan’s Granola

Mix together:

4 1/2 c. Oats

1 c. Coconut

1 c. Sunflower seeds

1/2 c. Dry Milk Powder

1/4 c. Seseme seeds

3/4 c Wheat Germ

Bring to a Boil :

2/3 c Oil

1 c Honey

1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Pour honey mixture over dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Spread on large greased cookie sheet covering bottom. Bake at 325 for 20 min stirring halfway through. Dump on newspaper to cool. Store in airtight container.

My favorite way to eat this since I was a little girl? With milk and a spoonful of peanut butter. YUM!


  1. mmm... sounds good and HEALTHY! I'll have to try it!

  2. Can you just make it for me:D

  3. Well, for the large families, could you post the extra large version? :) We go though a box of cereal every few days. I like your new blog. The name and background pics are so perfect!


Hearing from you makes my day!
