4 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup natural bran
¼ cup toasted wheat germ
¼ cup chopped almonds
¼ cup sesame seeds
¼ cup sunflower seeds
½ tsp salt
1 cup hot water
½ cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sultanas
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Mix the oats, bran, wheat germ, flour, nuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and salt together until thoroughly combined.
In a separate little bowl, combine the water, honey and vanilla. Combine with the dry ingredients and mix well.
Grease two baking sheets and spread the mixture on the baking sheets, then squeeze together to make small clumps. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until the granola mix is nice and golden. You will have to stir occasionally. Add raisins, stir again and bake for an extra 5 minutes.
Let the granola mix cool and then fill it into airtight containers.
This is a delicious and healthy granola that can be enjoyed with fresh fruit and yoghurt for a healthy start of the day!
