This is a recipe that I worked on and modified over the years. It’s an easy to make oil free granola–crunchy too!

8 cups Oats
1 cup Sunflower Seeds
1 TB Sesame Seeds
1 cup brown rice syrup
3/4 cup water

Add After Baking (Optional)
Chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix wet ingredients in another bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in parts. Mix well. Spread granola out on 2 cookie sheets. Bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn granola with a spatula, then cook for an additional 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes so granola gets crunchy. Add raisins and/or chocolate chips.


  • Don’t bake the raisins or chocolate chips. The raisins will come out crunchy and the chips will melt.
  • You can substitute honey, barley malt syrup, and sorghum for brown rice syrup.
  • Don’t use your best cookie sheets as the granola will stick.
