Gourmet Granola


6 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup sesame seeds
3/4 cup sunflower seeds, raw
1 cup dried coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup molasses
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In separate pan, oven roast the oats, walnuts, pecans, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds until lightly toasted; cool.
In a large bowl, combine all toasted ingredients with coconut, date and raisins.

Set aside.

Combine oil, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, molasses, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a saucepan.

Stir over low heat until well-combined and warm to the touch. (Do not boil!)

Pour liquid mixture over dry mixture and mix well.
Turn out and flatten onto a greased cookie sheet pan and roast at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, stirring every five minutes.
Remove from oven, cool and store in tightly sealed containers in a cool, dry place.

Makes about 1 gallon of granola, or 36 1/3 cup servings.

  1. This granola is the best recipe I've ever come across. I love fabulous mix of ingredients in it. Gourmet Granola is very easy to make, and it tastes absolutely divine. You'll never regret making this recipe. We live in New Zealand and had the pleasure of having Gourmet Granola when we stayed at the Chambered Nautilus just over two years ago. Having a jar of it in our kitchen is a wonderful reminder of our joyful stay. Thank you – Elizabeth and James Renwick, Kapiti Coast, New Zealand.
