adapted from my friend Phyllis Capparelli’s recipe
I played with this recipe until I got a base that I can use different nuts and fruits and it is not too sweet. This recipe makes 1 gallon of granola. Oven 300
12 cups of Old Fashioned Oats
1.5 tsp salt
3 tsp ground cinnamon
1/12 cups of unsweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cup of almonds, chopped
3/4 cup of other nuts or seeds
3/4 cup of organic coconut oil, melted
3/4 cup maple syrup
3 cups dried fruit, added after the granola is baked
Mix the first 6 ingredients together.
Melt coconut oil, add maple syrup to it and mix until well combine
Add the liquid to the oat mix. Spread on roasting pans and bake oven 300 for about 1 hour, mixing every 15-20 minutes until golden. After it is cooled, add dried fruit and store in a glass container. If not eating for a while, it can be frozen.
