THE EASIEST, most delicious homemade granola recipe!
Ohhhh…your house is about to be filled with the sweetest aroma while this granola is cooking!
A WONDERFUL Breakfast or anytime Snack idea!
Transfer your cooled granola into clean jars and store it in your cupboard, for up to 2 weeks.
Also stores EXCELLENT in the freezer for up to 2 months.
I prefer “Lets Do Organic” brand coconut.
This granola makes FABULOUS Christmas presents filled in cute glass jars with a simple ribbon.
I highly recommend doubling this recipe.
I actually prefer the taste and crunch of frozen granola, and often enjoy this right out of the freezer.
I used a 5 QT slow cooker for this batch, but would use a larger slow cooker to double the recipe.
makes about 8 cups, 1/2 cup is a serving size
- 4 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, or unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped raw pecans, or walnuts
- 1/2 cup raw sliced almonds
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 4 Tbsps unrefined coconut oil, melted
- 1/2 cup raw honey, or pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup golden raisins
Combine oats, coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, pecans and almond flakes in the bowl of your slow cooker/crockpot.
In a separate small bowl, whisk melted coconut oil, raw honey, water, vanilla, cinnamon and a pinch of sea salt, until well combined. Pour this over the oat mixture and thoroughly stir to coat. Cover with the lid and cook on HIGH for 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
Once done, stir in the dried fruits. Spread granola onto a large baking sheet and allow it to cool completely; as it cools it will get crispier.Transfer to clean jars and store it in your cupboard, for up to 2 weeks. Also stores EXCELLENT in your freezer for up to 2 months (I actually LOVE the taste of frozen granola). Serve with Greek yogurt and fresh berries.
