“A wonderful breakfast treat that's way better than anything you can buy in a box! Use the baking nuts that aren't salted or roasted.” - by LauraBee
Original recipe yields 8 1/2 cups
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, hot water and honey. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, almonds, pecans, and walnuts. Pour the honey mixture into the oat mixture and stir until the oats and nuts are evenly coated. Spread out the granola onto 2 baking sheets.
- Bake for 10 minutes, stir, and bake 10 more minutes, or until toasted. Allow granola to cool completely before stirring in the raisins, golden raisins and dried cherries. Granola will harden as it cools. Break apart any large lumps, and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

"Excellent! Why did I eat cereal out of a box for so long? I always add 1 T of vanilla, 1 T of cinnamon and 3/4 c sunflower or pumpkin seeds. Then I vary the fruit each time I make it, allowing abou..." See moret 1/2 c for each type until I reach the 3 cups total fruit called for by the recipe. I've used dates, figs, dried mango, peaches, nectarines, apricots & cranberries, golden raisins and unsweetened coconut in addition to regular raisins and dried cherries. For variety, substitute coconut, maple or banana flavoring for the vanilla or maple syrup or agave nectar for the honey. Line your baking pans with parchment paper for super easy clean up, then roll the paper up and store it to use for your next batch. You can cut the fat by subbing applesauce for 1/2 of the oil. I've done this several times and it works fine. Note: if you're looking for a clumpy granola, this is not the one for you. This only clumps up some IF your honey is beginning to solidify. If clumps are your thing, choose a recipe with more sugar."
"Fabulous recipe! I didn't have dried cherries, so I used some extra raisins and broken pieces of sweetened banana chips. I also added some sweetened coconut flakes and a bit of cinnamon. I think 20..." See more minutes total was a bit too long for this recipe - some of the oats were a bit burned. I would reduce the baking time to 15-17 minutes."
