"I've been making this for most of my life! It can work with any quick oats, but it's really special with Irish oats. And of course, like any granola, it can be tailored to your tastes by adding raisins or craisins."

Step 1

In large bowl mix oats, wheat germ, coconut, brown sugar and nuts.

Step 2

In a small bowl mix 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup water, vanilla, salt until thoroughly combined.

Step 3

Pour liquids from small bowl slowly into the large bowl and combine thoroughly (your hands work best for this step if you don't mind getting dirty)

Step 4

Then add the whole wheat flour slowly, combining a little at a time.

Step 5

At this step, it depends on your desire for really chunky granola or smaller granola to eat as a cereal. If you want smaller granola, skip this step. If you like chunky granola, add a teaspoon of canola oil and a teaspoon of water until it starts to bind into chunks. Keep adding equal amounts oil and water until granola reaches your desired chunkiness.

Step 6

Spread granola onto lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes or so, stirring halfway through cooking time, until desired toasted color.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I wanted something green to serve for St Patty's Day, so I made this and used pistachio nuts to make it festive. It came out great and we loved it as part of our Irish morning breakfast! It's magically delicious and better than me Lucky Charms!

Got the Irish Oats online & managed to make this granola pretty much as given! I did use a cup of slivered almonds & a cup of pistachios for the nuts & the granola was great! Will definitely be making this again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
