Serves: 10


  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cups sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup chopped, un-salted, un-rosted almonds
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons healthy oil of your choice (we like un-roasted sesame oil but olive oil works too)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
In This Recipe


  1. Heat oven to 275 degrees.
  2. Oil a 9x13 inch baking sheet.
  3. Mix oats, wheat germ, brown sugar, salt and extras-except dried fruit-in a bowl.
  4. Bring honey, oil, water, and vanilla to a simmer in a saucepan on low heat. Stop just when everything is combined. Do not let boil.
  5. Drizzle liquid over oat mixture. Stir.
  6. Pour onto baking sheet. Use a spatula and lightly compress granola. This helps form better chunks.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely before stirring or you will lose the clumps.
