Turtleback Farm Inn Granola

From Turtleback Farm Inn in Orcas Island, Washington

Turtleback Farm Inn Granola is always available and is served every day along with fruit and juice. Many types of granola that are mass produced are full of sugar and tropical oils which is unfortunate, because it can be a very healthful food if prepared right. The taste of this granola stands alone, but the Inn serves it with raisins and yogurt on the side - dressing it up as well as adding further nutritional value.


  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour (unbleached)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • ½ cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 Tablespoon salt (may be omitted)


Mix all ingredients well and spread into two 9 inch X 12 inch pans. Bake at 300º, stirring often to prevent scorching, approximately 60-90 minutes or until nicely browned.
