Ingredients
  • 6 cups Oats
  • 2 cups Unsweetened Coconut
  • 2 cups Sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cups Flax Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Canola oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, mix oats, coconut, almonds and flax seeds.

  2. In another bowl, mix oil, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. If honey is too thick, place bowl into microwave for 15 seconds. Stir until well incorporated.

  3. Bowl honey mixture over oat mixture. Stir until oat mixture is coated with honey mixture.

  4. Divide in two parts. Spread each part onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly over baking sheet.

  5. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and lightly stir granola moving outside pieces to the center. Spread evenly across baking sheet again. Return to oven, rotating location of baking sheets.

  6. Bake for an additional 8 minutes. Keep a close eye on granola. It can burn quickly. 

  7. When granola is lightly browned, remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet. 

  8. After granola has cooled, break into pieces and store in an airtight container. 

Recipe Notes

To add dried fruit, cut fruit into small pieces. Add to granola once granola has been cooked and cooled.
