Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 Pounds rolled oats
  • 1 Pound peanuts, chopped
  • 1/2 Pound unsalted raw pecans, walnuts, or cashews
  • 8 Ounces brown sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 Cups agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 2 Cups vegetable oil
  • 4 Cups shredded coconut
  • 4 Cups dried fruit, such as cranberries, raisins, or currants

Directions

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the agave nectar or maple syrup and vegetable oil. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together.

Spread evenly on baking sheets (you may need more than one baking sheet). Bake for 45-60 minutes. The granola should be very firm to the touch and not damp. Remove from the oven and let cool. Transfer to an airtight container in large chunks. Mix with the dried fruit before serving.

Granola Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Granola Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
