Easy and Inexpensive Granola


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 4 cups oats
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup any available chopped nuts
  • 2 tablespoon wheat germ (optional)
  • 1/2 cup or more any dried fruit that you like, cut in small pieces
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup sweetener (maple syrup, vegan brown sugar, whatever)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


This recipe is infinitely variable according to whatever you have on hand.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In large shallow baking pan, combine all of the grain
and seed ingredients. Combine sweetener and oil in small pan, heat until it
it is smooth and hot. Pour over the seed mixture and stir. Add spices,
put the whole thing in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Stir after about 15 minutes.
Let cool, add dried fruits; mix will keep almost forever in air-tight container.
Delicious as a cold cereal with soy milk, or add soy milk and fresh fruit and
heat until slightly boiling (about a minute in microwave) for a quick and delicious porridge.

Serves: 8.

Preparation time: 5 minutes to make, 30 minutes to bake.

Nutrition Information: This is chock full of those whole grains and seeds that are so important
to our diet. For vegans, the sesame seeds have lots of calcium too.

If you are watching fat and vegan sugar intake, I make mine without the oil
and sweetener, and it is still yummy — especially with the lite soy milk as
opposed to cow milk because soy milk has a sweet taste.
Compare the price of making this to buying store granola — it is amazing..
