Homemade Granola


  • 4 cups whole grain oats
  • 1 cup almonds, coarsely broken
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 3/4 cup Beyond the Olive Arbosana Blend extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup honey (experiment with your favorite varieties)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup dark raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries


Preheat oven to 350°. Spray baking sheet with non-stick olive oil spray. Combine oats, almonds, cinnamon and coconut. In a separate bowl, combine oil, honey and vanilla. Pour over the dry mixture and mix until well coated. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 14 minutes until golden, stirring half-way through. After the granola has cooled completely, stir in raisins and cranberries. Store in an airtight container.
