Homemade Granola

I am a granola snob and nothing makes me happier than eating delicious and great granola. I have yet to find a homemade granola recipe I love — until now. And now I am obsessed. This granola is not overly sweet, delicious and has the perfect mixture of nutty, sweet, and grains. The beauty of it is that you can add whatever you want to customize it to how you love granola!





* 6 cups of old fashioned oats

* sliced almonds

* unsweetened coconut flakes

* sesame seeds

* 3/4 cup of maple syrup

* 3/4 cup of vegetable oil

* dried fruit (to add in AFTER you bake)




FIRST — heat the oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Then, in a bowl, mix together the oats, sesame seeds, almonds and coconut flakes.

Then add the maple syrup and the vegetable oil. And combine well.

On a sheet, spread the mixture out — the more spread out, the faster and easier it is to bake it.

Put the oats in to the oven for 10 minutes, and while it is baking, cut the dried fruit into smaller segments.

I used apricots and cherries — but you can use anything. The sky is the limit!

Check the granola after 10 minutes, and if not golden brown, check again in 5 minutes, etc..This is how brown I made this batch.

Combine fruit and oat mixture.

Does not look as good as it tastes — it tastes unbelievable.


So good, so good.


I love eating it with milk and or yogurt, or just plain! So delicious!
