What’s Cookin’….Granola

on February 11, 2013

Well last week I showed you how to make yogurt. This week I will show you how to make something to put on your yogurt, granola! My kids love granola,  me too, but it is really expensive to buy. This recipe is easy, inexpensive, and you can make as much as you want. I make this recipe once a week but you could make more if you have a larger family or really like granola.


2 cups rolled oats and 2 cups quick oats, or any combination

2 cups shredded coconut

1 cup chopped pecans, or any nuts you wish. (optional)

1 cup dried fruit (optional)

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

3/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 tsp salt


Here’s how you make it!

First mix the dry ingredients: oats, coconut, nuts, salt, dried fruit.


Next melt the coconut oi. Mix the oil and maple syrup into the dry ingredients.


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spread your granola onto two pans and put into warmed oven. Stir every 10-15 minutes until brown and crunchy. about 25-35 minutes. I keep checking and taste some to get the right doneness. When it tastes and feels right I take it out. Let it cool and then put in an air tight container. It will be good for about a week.


Eat and enjoy!
