  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • contents of one vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup strawberry puree about large 5-6 strawberries for me
  • dried strawberries optional


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a large bowl combine oats, wheat germ, flax, salt, cinnamon and almonds. Stir to combine. Add strawberries (with tops removed) to a food processor and blend until pureed. Set aside. Melt butter and add vanilla and vanilla beans to it.
  • Add honey to the oat mixture, combined with a spoon. Stir in strawberry puree and butter + vanilla mixture, tossing until everything is coated. Spread out on a baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring every 5-7 minutes. You want granola to be slightly golden when you remove it from the oven. Let it sit and cool for one hour – at this time it should become crunchy. Fold in dried strawberries. Store in a seal tight container for up to one week.
