The best part of granola is its versatility. Shredded coconut, chopped walnuts and dates comprise this version.
- 2 cups oats
- 1 cup chopped nuts of your choice
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 cup chopped dried fruit of your choice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a 9 inch baking dish.
Combine oats, nuts, fruit, coconut, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl.
In a saucepan combine butter, honey or syrup, and brown sugar until melted and bubbly. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla. Pour into oat mixture and mix until all oats are fully coated. Pour into the greased dish and bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring half way through.
The granola will turn golden brown and become very fragrant.
Store in an airtight container. Enjoy with cold milk or stir into your morning yogurt. Sprinkle on your ice cream or simple munch on a handful at a time.
