Nutty Granola



Granola is so easy to make why would you ever buy it. Pick all the things you like and use it in pancakes or just simply with fruit and yogurt.



You will need:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almonds (whole or chopped)
  • 1 cup hazelnuts/filberts
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 cup chopped dried fruit (I used cranberries and figs)



Step 1: add all ingredients except the dried fruit. Toss to coat and bake in 325 degree F oven for 15- 20 minutes. Stir and rotate pan every 5 minutes until lightly browned.




Step 2: chop any dried fruit you want to add.


Let cool 5 minutes, scrape pan and cool completely. Add your dried fruit and use or store in a sealed container.


store in an airtight container and if you are not using within a week store in the freezer to preserve the freshness of the nuts. Use on top of fruit and yogurt drizzled with more honey or try some in your next batch of pancakes. Hello breakfast!
