Total Time: 20
Yield: about 5 cups
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup whole almonds
- 3/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
- 1 cup raisins or chopped dried cherries
Instructions:Heat oven to 250°. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except raisins (or cherries); make sure oats, almonds, and coconut are well coated with sugar, syrup, and oil. Spread out on one large baking sheet (or two small sheets). Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes for even browning.
Remove the sheet from the oven and let cool on wire racks. Scoop or pour granola into a large bowl, add raisins or cherries, and mix well. Store in well-sealed containers at room temperature up to two weeks.
