Homemade Granola

I never realized it was so easy. I guess I never thought about it. But it is simple. With one wee little caution–don’t let it burn. Mine was just about golden, I thought “i’ll leave it a minute or two”…and the next thing I knew, it had been in too long. And the fruit & raisins had burned to a crisp. (also–add them at the end, don’t bake them the entire time as I did). OOPS. i mixed in new fruit and it’s mostly edible. But excited to try it again.

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • drizzle of honey  (3 Tbs)
  • a handful of pecans
  • a handful of raisins
  • a handful of dried cranberies
  • a few mini dark chocolate  chips
  • a few chopped dried apricots
  • a dash  of cinnamon
  • a dash of nutmeg

The method

  1. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.
  2. pour the oats, honey, oil onto sheet stir around
  3. bake at 350 for 20-30 mins.
  4. Add the fruits and nuts at the end. Bake a few more mins
  5. let it cool and enjoy.
