DIRECTIONS

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