1 large container of quick oats (2 lbs, 10 oz)
1 cup grape seed oil
1 cup honey
2 cups shredded coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)
2 cups sliced almonds (unsalted)
1 cup each dried blueberries, cherries and cranberries
Add grade seed oil and honey in large measuring cup and be sure to mix well as possible. Place dry oatmeal in a very large bowl and pour the oil and honey mixture into the oat as they are mixed thoroughly by hand. You would like to have the mixture as even as possible. Allow the oats to soak for approximately 2 hours. The idea is that the more the honey and oil penetrate the oats, the more moist the finished granola will be.
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Spread oats on a tray and bake for 30 minutes turning once after 15 minutes. Set aside to cool. Note: You may need to do across two trays or in batches.
On another tray, spread the shredded coconut and the almonds and bake for 10 minutes also turning once after 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Once everything has cooled, mix both trays together. Add the dried fruit of your choice and mix one final time. Store in sealed container. Enjoy on top of yogurt, with milk or just as a tasty treat. Makes a great snack on the go!
A lot of servings 🙂
