Mom’s Homemade Inspiration Granola Recipe {Vegan}

Posted Jun 30 2011 5:44pm

Last night I had a hankering for some ice cream. So I pulled a carton of Whole Foods Vanilla from my mom’s freezer and scooped some into a bowl.

Wanting to add a little crunch I looked around for a suitable topping and spied a jar of granola on the table.

“Oh yum, is this granola from Whole Foods Momma?”

“Nope, I made it. My biking buddy Jane gave me the recipe and suggested that I fiddle with it a bit.”

Exchanges like this happen all the time when I am visiting my mom. She makes 95% of everything she eats completely from scratch including cookies, bread, yogurt, relish, and apparently granola.

I’d like to think that I am a ‘cook from scratch’ type of gal. However, more often than not I am an ‘impatient, want foods that fulfill my cravings to be ready and waiting’ type of gal.

Clearly, I can’t say that I was raised that way, nor can I claim a lack of skill or knowledge.

This granola is so scrumptious that it has inspired me to try and slow things down devote a few hours a week to some true ‘from scratch cooking’.

Not only will it be good for my body, but it will also be good for my soul.

Created by Judy Miller, Inspired by the Turtleback Farm Inn Granola Recipe


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup oat flour/ground oats
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup corn meal
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut or vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, or other nuts


  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients except the nuts and raisins in a large bowl and spread onto a 9 x 12 baking pan.
  3. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Stir the granola every 10 to 15 minutes to prevent scorching.
  4. Take the pan out of the oven, add the raisins and nuts, stir and bake for another 15 minutes or until the granola is golden brown.

Serve granola with milk, yogurt, ice cream or just eat as is. It is simply delicious.
