Chunky Granola (No Oil Added)

Chunky Granola (No Oil Added)

(12 servings)    Printable Version
  • 8 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup nuts (toasted pecans work great)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup whole millet or whole buckwheat
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl or pot, combine oats, nuts,
seeds, millet, flour, and salt.

Mix together honey, water, and vanilla, and stir into dry ingredients.

Spread on a lightly oiled baking sheet and squeeze mixture together to
form small chunks, but don't overcrowd; the chunks need to bake clear
through. Roast until golden brown, about 10 to 20 minutes.

As it bakes, the granola may need stirring to brown evenly. Cool thoroughly before storing.

You don't need cooking oil to make good granola. Keep it healthy. Keep it tasty.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank scrambler for this recipe.

I didn't have buckwheat flour/millet, so I used a 5-grain cereal. I put in slightly less honey and a little less water and added applesauce until it was moist enough - almost sticky. I think the applesauce added a nice bit of sweetness that it would have been lacking.

I totally agree with that last comment. I added shredded coconut, dates, and ginger to spice mine up.

I just made this granola, and it truly is chunky, but a little bland. The pre-baked mixture was very good, but after cooling I feel like it is a little dry and bland, I added some crasins to the cooled granola and now am storing for tomorrow. I think it will be OK after it has some time in a bowl of milk, with some syrup on top.
