Honey Oat Granola is loaded with unsweetened coconut flakes that toast up all golden and crispy, and lots of nuts and dried fruit.
  • 4 cups organic, gluten free, old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped organic raw almonds
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped organic raw cashews, pecans or walnuts
  • ½ cup organic raisins
  • ½ cup organic dried cranberries or cherries or dried fruit of your choice
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup organic coconut oil or organic olive or grapeseed oil
  • ¼ cup raw, organic honey
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 325. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with oil or butter. In a large bowl, stir together oats, almonds, pecans, coconut, cinammon and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a 1 cup measure, combine oil, honey and maple syrup. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Drizzle syrup over oat mixture and toss with a big spoon. You may need to use your hands to blend.
  4. Pour granola onto the baking sheet and spread evenly. Bake, stirring occasionally (stirring schedule in Kate's Tips) until golden, about 22 minutes. Now add the raisins and dried cranberries and bake another 5 minutes.
  5. Let granola cool completely on the baking sheet on a wire rack. Break into chunks and store in an airtight container.
