  • 8 cups rolled oats
  • 1 & 1/2 cups wheat germ
  • 1 & 1/2 cups oat bran
  • 2 (6-oz) cans Blue Diamond Toasted Coconut Almonds
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts 2 of the 2.25 oz packages


  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup the real stuff
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 & 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla or vanilla bean paste
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 & 1/2 cups dried mango chopped
  • 1 & 1/2 cups dried apricots large ones halved


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In the largest bowl you have, combine the oats, wheat germ, oat bran, Toasted Coconut Almonds, and macadamia nuts.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine oil, maple syrup, honey, salt, ginger, cardamom, allspice, and cinnamon.
  • Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Wait about a minute and then stir in the vanilla (If you do it right away some of it will burn off). Add the lime juice.
  • Slowly pour some of the liquid over the oat mixture and stir. Add the rest in a few increments until it is all incorporated.
  • Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets (I used 1 large and 2 small) with foil or parchment paper. Spray with nonstick spray. Divide the granola between the pans and spread evenly.
  • Bake at 325 for about 12 minutes, then stir the pans and bake for another 10-12 minutes, until it's just starting to brown. (If you are baking all pans at once, rotate the top and bottom pans when you stir.)
  • Let the granola cool. Sprinkle the mangos and apricots over the granola and mix in.
  • Store in an airtight container. Ziplocks or quart jars work great.


Granola is so adaptable! The honey/maple can be in any ratio you like, or replaced with agave or something similar. Add shredded coconut or replace some other ingredients with it. Dried pineapple would be a great sub for dried mango. Change up the spices. The possibilities are endless!
