I made this up the other day and my brother-in-law can't stop eating it! I think it is delicious and want to share it with others. Most of the items I purchased in bulk so it is also very economical. This recipe is not only tasty, but also high in fiber and packed with nutrition.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300.
  2. In a very large bowl mix together the first eight ingredients.
  3. In another bowl mix together coconut and chopped up papaya and chopped up pineapple.
  4. Combine in a sauce pan olive oil, honey, vanilla, brown sugar, and salt.
  5. Heat on medium heat until all are dissolved and form a"syrup".
  6. Pour the"syrup" from the sauce pan into the very large bowl with the eight dry ingredients.
  7. Stir and smash together with a large spoon.
  8. When all seems mixed and coated add the fruit mixture and stir some more.
  9. Divide mixture in half, put half into an ungreased 9x13 glass baking dish.
  10. Spread mixture evenly but do not pack into the pan tightly.
  11. If you have two 9x13 pans they will both fit in the oven at once, saving on baking time.
  12. Bake at 300 for 35 minutes, then turn up oven to 325 and continue to bake for another 15 minutes.
  13. Stir the mixture once just a little when it comes out, do not break up clumps.
  14. Allow to COOL COMPLETELY before removing from pan.
  15. Store your now cool, dry, and toasted granola in an airtight container or ziplock bags.
  16. Serve with milk as you would cereal or eat the clumps for snacks and stir smaller pieces into yogurt.
