    No MSG!'s Note:

    This granola is a great way to add healthy rolled oats and nuts to your diet. It is a great alternative to prepared cereals packed with sugar, hydrogenated oils and mystery ingredients. It can easily be adapted to include your preferred ingredients. My husband and I eat this often as a before-bed snack. I like it best served with bananas or strawberries and drenched with milk. I also like it over plain yogurt and fresh fruit. It is much easier to make using a large stainless steel bowl instead of the pan or cookie sheet that some recipes suggest. Please note that if you are looking for a very rich, sweet granola with clusters of oats, this recipe is not for you. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DRIED FRUIT MUST BE ADDED AFTER COOKING. A REVIEWER STATED THAT THE RECIPE HAD BEEN FOLLOWED TO THE LETTER AND HER FRUIT BURNT. THE RECIPE CLEARLY STATES NOT TO COOK THE FRUIT. THANK YOU.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 cups rolled oats
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 1/4 cup honey (preferably raw)
    • 1 cup coconut (optional)
    • 1 cup nuts (e.g., pecans, walnuts, almonds, or a mixture)
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1 cup dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, etc.)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      In a large oven-proof bowl or pan, melt butter in oven.
    3. 3
      After butter is melted, add honey and cinnamon and mix well until cinnamon is dissolved into the honey and oil.
    4. 4
      Add the oats, nuts, and coconut if desired.
    5. 5
      Mix until the oats and nuts are well coated with honey and butter/oil.
    6. 6
      Place in the oven for 30 minutes or until oats and nuts are well toasted, stirring frequently.
    7. 7
      Allow to cool and add dried fruit and store in an airtight container. This stores for at least a month in the pantry and much longer in the refrigerator.
    8. 8
      I generally triple or quadruple this recipe. Cooking time is considerably longer. Just make sure you stir at least every fifteen minutes.
    9. 9
      Oil may be substituted for butter. Wheat germ can also be added but tends to make the texture grainy.

      The fruit should be added after all the cooking is done, or in the last few minutes.

      I followed the instructions to the letter, and think that this recipe has masses of potential but gave me a few problems. I used the coconut, added walnust and a few peanuts and raisins and the taste would have been far better if my raisins hadn't burnt. They didn't look too dark, but they were very chewy with an burnt aftertaste, so I picked them out of the mix and then the taste was great. I will make this again... but will add the raisins in the last 10 minutes or so and then I think it will be really good. I ate the de-raisined mixture with chocolate soya milk and it was an excellent breakfast. Please see my rating system, 3 stars because I would like to do some modification on this but with easy 4 star potential. Thanks No MSG for posting the recipe :)
