Aloha Hawaiian Granola

Aloha Hawaiian Granola

(16 servings)    Printable Version
  • 4 cups regular rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup wheat germ
  • 4 ounces shredded coconut (about 1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup raw macadamia nuts (8 oz)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup honey (depending on your sweet tooth)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup dried pineapple - chopped into small pieces
This recipe makes about 8 cups of granola.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Prepare a 10 x 15 inch baking sheet with a generous coating of cooking spray.

In large bowl, stir together oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, coconut, nuts, and both seeds.

In a small saucepan, heat canola oil, honey and vanilla until just bubbling. Pour hot mixture over oat mixture and mix thoroughly.

Spread granola evenly over prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until coconut is lightly browned - stir granola around at least twice during the cooking time.

Remove from oven and add the dried pineapple pieces. Continue to stir up the granola as you allow it to cool a few minutes.

Store in airtight container until ready to serve. Awesome as a snack or a cereal with milk.

Hi Mr. Breakfast. This is a variation on a recipe I got from Pamela Lanier's Bed and Breakfast. I halved the original recipe and added the pineapple. I love it and you and everybody else will too. Aloha!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank bethy for this recipe.

I have been making this recipe for over 10 years! I use coconut oil instead of canola oil. I also add a variety of nuts and extra coconut.

Great mix of flavors, but you need to chop the macadamia nuts or they're too big compared to the other ingredients. I also toasted the nuts in a frying pan until they smelled amazing and then I added them in with the oats. But overall, great recipe.
