Chunky Granola (With No Oil Added)


If you want to avoid oil in your granola, try this no oil added granola recipe, crunchy and flavorful.













Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber, Low Sodium


8 cups rolled oats
1 cup nuts
½ cup sunflower seeds
½ cup millet
3 cups whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup honey
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

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 crowd; the chunks need to bake clear through.

Roast until golden brown, about 10 to 20 minutes.

(With the larger amount of water, reduce heat and bake longer.) As it bakes the granola may need stirring to brown evenly.

Cool thoroughly before storing.

Variations: Replace part of the water with the freshly squeezed juice of 2 oranges (and add the grated rinds if the oranges were not sprayed with pesticides), or use 2 teaspoons orange oil.
