Homemade Granola

Make your own granola. It’s easy. It’s cost effective and way tastier than anything you’ll buy in the store. Go to the bulk section in your grocer for the ingredients.

Best Granola



-3 cups of rolled oats

-1/2 cup walnuts

-1 cup whole cashews

-1/2 cup shredded coconut

-1/4 cup dark brown sugar

-1/3 cup maple syrup

-3 tblsp safflower oil

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-1 1/2 cups dried fruit (cherries, raisins, apricots-your choice)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Take the oil and maple syrup and mix in a small bowl. In another bowl mix the oats, nuts, coconut sugar and salt. Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir to evenly coat. Take two large sheet pans cover the bottom with parchment or wax paper. Lay the ingredients in an even layer and place in the oven for approximately 1 to 1/2 hours stirring every twenty minutes. The granola is cooked when it turns a warm golden brown color. Remove and mix in the dried fruits.
