Homemade Granola

Finished Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola

4 Cups of Old Fashioned Oats
2 Cups Chopped Walnut Pieces
1/4 Cup Sesame Seeds
2/3 cup Virgin Coconut Oil
1/2 cup Raw Honey
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Salt
3 oz. dried fruit (I use one bag of Made in Nature Organic Dried Apples), chopped
1 cup Raisins

1. Mix the Oats, Walnuts and Sesame Seeds Together.

2. Mix in the coconut oil and raw honey, making sure to coat everything.

3. Sprinkle Cinnamon and salt over the Mixture and mix in. You should now have a mixture that looks like this.

4. Spread on a greased or lined baking sheet and Bake in 300 oven for 35 mins, stirring occasionally. For a chewy granola, take out after the 35 mins are done. For a crisp granola, turn off your oven, and let the granola stay in there for another 15 minutes or so.

5. Take it out of your oven and let it cool.

6. Once cooled, mix in your dried fruit.

7. You can freeze it or store it in an air-tight container

Homemade granola is always open to interpretation. Don't like walnuts? Add some chopped almonds. Don't like sesame seeds, add some flax seeds (or add them both). Don't like dried apples? Use dried apricots. This is the recipe that works for all the tastes in our family, but there are a hundred variations your family can try.
