Making homemade granola is so simple…why wouldn’t you? Here is a basic recipe but feel free to add at the end any variation of dried fruits and toasted nuts.
Cranberry Almond Granola
yield 10 cups
4 cups rolled oats
2 cups unsweetened coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup vegetable or grape seed oil
2 cups dried cranberries ( any other toasted nuts or dried fruit or combination of)
Mix oats, coconut and almonds in a bowl. Toss with oil and honey and cinnamon. Spread out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Bake 30 mins until toasted stirring occasionally. Allow to cool. Scrape into a large bowl and break apart by hand. Add cranberries and any other dried fruits or nuts that you would like. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks. I will post my favourite banana granola recipe for the occasion when it doesn’t all get eaten in time!
