Recipe for Granola


3 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup Maple syrup

1 tsp cinnamon, ground

1/2 tsp salt, kosher

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped

1/4 cup brown sugar (optional)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F

In a saucepan melt coconut oil, add honey and Maple syrup. Bring to a slow boil and remove from heat. In a large stainless steel bowl combine rolled oats, walnuts, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and salt; mix thoroughly. Pour the warm liquid of sweetened coconut oil into rolled oats mixture and blend thoroughly. Using a rimmed half-sheet pan or rimmed cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, place granola mixture and spread out evenly. Pat granola mix down with spoon or spatula, it helps the mixture to form blumps. Place granola in oven for 12-15 minutes, remove from oven and move mixture around a little on pan as edges and top of mixture begin to brown. Pat down mixture again with spatula. Place pan back in oven and turn the pan around. Bake another 12-15 minutes until the mixture is light golden brown. Remove mixture from oven and return the mixture to the large stainless steel bowl, Add raisins, and apricots, and toss. At this point I add some brown sugar (optional) and toss again. Allow to cool and for best results store in glass jars.
