Description

Forget the store bought stuff! This homemade granola is so simple and easy to prepare, you’ll never want to buy it again!


Ingredients

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened, unsulphured, unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 3 tbs apple juice
  • 1/4 cup raw pecans
  • 1/4 cup flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup golden flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup dried raisins
  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix the oats, coconut, brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  3. In a smaller bowl mix the oil, vanilla extract and agave nectar.
  4. Add the oil mixture to the oats. Mix it really well with your hands until the oats are coated evenly.
  5. Add the apple juice and squeeze the mixture together to form some clusters.
  6. Add pecans and flax seeds. Mix well.
  7. Spread evenly on a baking sheet, to form one single, thin layer ( you may need to bake it in two batches)
  8. Bake for 45 minutes at 275F, checking and mixing every 10-15 minutes so it cooks evenly.
  9. Let it cool slightly and add dried fruit. Let it cool completely and store in air tight container.
