This granola recipe has replaced the cold cereal we were buying. It is a good replacement, healthier, and much more economical. Once you make homemade granola, you will find that you can change it up to take out what you may not like and replace it with things that you do. Granola is very, very forgiving!
The Best Homemade Granola
- 9 cups of oats
- 1 cup of honey
- 1 cup of coconut oil
- 1 t. salt
- 1 t. cinnamon
- 2 cup raisins (we like the golden raisins)
- 1/2 cup pecans (optional)
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, salt, cinnamon and pecans. In a separate saucepan, heat together the honey and coconut oil. Bring it to a gentle boil. Pour it over the dry ingredients and mix well.
Place on two cookie sheets (line with parchment paper for easy clean up) and bake in oven for 10 minutes on 350. Remove from oven and add in raisins or other dried fruit of your choice. Cool and place in air-tight containers. I keep ours in the frig.
If you like your granola crunchy, you will need to stir it during the baking time and increase the baking time. We like ours soft, so we only bake it for the 10 minutes.
