Granola with Yogurt

  • Active Time 5m
  • Total Time 2h 35m

Serves 4

Three types of nuts give this granola a satisfying texture and a pleasant richness. The slow roasting of the ingredients heightens their flavors and extends the shelf life of the cereal. The granola can be stored in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for 2 weeks.

ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup blanched sliced (flaked) almonds
  • 1/4 cup shelled sunflower seeds
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1 cup mixed berries such as raspberries, strawberries and blueberries, stems removed if necessary
  • 4 fresh mint sprigs

directions

Preheat an oven to 225 degrees F.

In a large bowl, stir together the oats, wheat germ, macadamia nuts, walnuts, almonds and sunflower seeds. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the honey and the oil. Heat until the honey liquefies. Add the vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and stir well. Let cool for 1 minute.

Drizzle the honey mixture over the oat mixture and, using your hands, rub together until all of the ingredients are thoroughly coated. Turn out the mixture onto a baking sheet and spread it evenly.

Bake until a deep golden brown, about 2 1/2 hours, stirring once at the halfway point to ensure even coloring. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

TO SERVE: Divide evenly among cereal bowls. While holding the granola to one side, spoon an equal amount of the yogurt into the open 1/2 of each bowl. Garnish with the berries and mint sprigs.
