Homemade Granola



  • 4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cuts shredded coconut (I used reduced fat)
  • 2 cups roasted cashews
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup good honey
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup dried apricots


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine oats and coconut. In a smaller bowl, whisk together vegetable oil and honey and add to the oats and coconut. Mix together with a wooden spoon. Pour onto a large jelly roll pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. Make sure to stir a few times while baking.

Combine cherries, cranberries, apricots, cashews and almonds in a bowl and set aside.

Remove granola from oven and allow to cool.

Add dried fruits and nuts to granola and mix together. Put in an airtight container to store. Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris
