Once you make this delicious homemade granola, you'll have a hard time going back to boxed versions. Wheat germ is a perfect addition, boosting protein and adding nutrition and great flavor.


2 cups old-fashioned oats

3/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

2 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup dry-roasted salted almonds, coarsely chopped

1 tablespoon orange zest

3 tablespoons canola oil

1/4 cup real maple syrup

1/2 cup chopped dried unsweetened mango

1/2 cup chopped dried cherries

Preheat oven to 300° F. Line large sheet pan (with sides) with parchment paper. In medium bowl, mix oats, wheat germ, pumpkin seeds, almonds and orange zest. Stir in canola oil and maple syrup.

Spread mixture evenly on sheet pan and bake for 30 minutes. Stir in mango and cherries and cook for an additional 10 minutes.

Remove pan from oven and let granola cool and harden before serving. Store in an airtight container.
