Homemade Granola

Posted by Paulette

At our local Winco, this week, I was looking at all of the different flavors of granola, and thinking, this should be a pretty easy thing to make. So a recipe was looked up, altered to what I had on hand and a batch was made. Sadly, it was gone within a 48 hour period. 

Much better than Honey Nut Cheerios! This was a declaration by Katie, and it doesn't get soggy in the milk. My personal opinion was that it was too sweet. I will be halving the sweeteners next time.


3 cups rolled oats
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup shredded sweet coconut
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Maple flavoring
1/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 teaspoon sea salt 
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup craisins


Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine honey, maple flavoring, coconut oil, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.

Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Add raisins and  craisins, and mix until evenly distributed.
