Ingredients

4 tablespoons unsalted butter or olive oil
½ cup honey
3 cups old fashioned oats
½ cup toasted wheat germ
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup unsweetened coconut
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
¾ teaspoon salt
½ cup macadamia nuts, toasted

Directions

Preheat oven to 325˚F.

In a small saucepan, over medium heat, add butter and honey. Heat until warm and butter has melted.

In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, coconut, spices and salt. Add butter and honey mixture and combine thoroughly. Mixture should be a wet consistency. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and place in oven for a total of 40 minutes, making sure to check every 10 minutes, stirring, so granola is toasted evenly. Once granola is golden brown, remove from oven and mix in toasted nuts and dried blueberries. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
