Honey Walnut Granola
Serves: 5½ c
  • 4 c old fashioned oats
  • ½ c chopped almonds (roasted almonds are really good)
  • 1 c walnuts and or pecans, chopped
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ c olive oil
  • ½ honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼-1/2 c shredded coconut (optional but really good; it toasts beautifully!)
  • ½ c dried fruit (optional - you can use raisins, dried cranberries, dried apples, dates, etc.)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine together the oats, nuts, salt, coconut and cinnamon.
  3. Mix together.
  4. Pour olive oil, honey, and vanilla.
  5. Stir until well coated with a wooden spoon.
  6. Pour out granola mixture into a jelly roll pan.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  8. Remove and allow to cool.
If you allow the granola to cool without stirring it when you remove it from the oven it will have bigger chunks. If you don't want chunks, stir the granola right when you remove it from the oven.
