In a large bowl, stir together the oats, wheatgerm, walnuts, almonds and dried cranberries. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Drizzle over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat evenly. Spread the mixture out in a thin layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes to toast evenly. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Granola will become crunchier as it cools.
Instead of dried cranberries, you can use any other dried fruit - sultanas, raisins, chopped dates, currants, blueberries, etc.
My first effort at home made Granola. This recipe is excellent and produces a very authentic result. Produced a kilo of Granola which was devoured by the family by the following morning.
Next time I will be rationing it! Used mixed fruit instead of cranberries. - 14 Feb 2012
