Our Favorite Granola

Prep Time: 10 minutes; Cook Time: 20 minutes; Servings:32


  • Old Fashioned Oats, 8 cups
  • Coconut Oil, 1 cup
  • Honey, .5 cup
  • Maple Syrup, .5 cup
  • Vanilla, 2 teaspoons
  • Kosher Salt, 2 teaspoons
  • Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon
  • Dried ginger, .5 teaspoon
  • Ground cloves, .25 teaspoon
  • Pecan halves, 2 cups
  • Craisins, 2 cups


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit and line a full baking sheet (or two half sheets) with parchment paper;
  2. In a small saucepan, combine coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, and vanilla over low heat; warm until melted; stir in salt and spices; remove from heat;
  3. In a large bowl, combine oats with melted oil and sugars; stir well;
  4. Spread out over pan and bake for 20-24 minutes (it likes 20 in my oven); turning the pan mid way through to prevent burning;
  5. During the last 8 minutes of cooking, add nuts to granola and continue cooking;
  6. Remove from oven, pour craisins on top, and using a spatula, press granola firmly down onto the pan (this is what will give you clumps);
  7. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes, then transfer to an air tight container.

    I recently started making a granola recipe that called for olive oil. It’s wonderful! Gives it a very interesting flavor. Though I will admit coconut oil is less expensive…
