Yield: About 5 Cups

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 cup raisins or chopped dried cherries

 

Directions

Heat oven to 250.° In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except raisins (or cherries); make sure oats, almonds, and coconut are well coated with sugar, syrup, and oil. Spread out on one large baking sheet (or two small sheets). Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes for even browning.


Remove the sheet from the oven and let cool on wire racks. Scoop or pour granola into a large bowl, add raisins or cherries, and mix well. Store in well-sealed containers at room temperature up to two weeks.
