My granola company never took off, but I’m still cranking out batches of this stuff and people are always wanting the recipe.
It’s a great summer snack to have in the glovebox instead of bars. With the nuts and oats, after a handful you’re satisfied until you can get some real food in you.
My recommendation is NOT to mix this with yogurt or milk. In comparison to other granolas, this blend doesn’t have a lot of sugar, so any addition dilutes the barley-there sweetness.
My Famous Granola
Yields about 9 cups or 3 mason jars.
Preheat oven to 325.
- 6 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 cup chopped almonds seeds
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 2/3 cup coconut oil
- 2/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 T cinnamon
- 1 t vanilla
- Parchment Paper
- Big baking pans with sides (Glass is best, but metal will do)
Don’t add them altogether, use each bullet as one blend.
- Dried plums chopped
- Currants (instead of raisins)
- Dried Apricot + Hazelnuts
- Dried and flatted bananas – sliced
- Pistachios (just the meat)
- Raw cashews
Line the pans with parchment paper and make sure you have two sides long enough to grab.
Pack it up in mason jars or cute bags and gift it to friends, co-workers, teachers. Use it for party favors. People love it!Tweet this!
