Equipment

  • Sheet Pan
  • Parchment Paper

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 3 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 2 cups Nuts I used almonds and pecans

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup Honey
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil
  • 3 tbsp Molasses
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Cloves
  • ½ tsp Nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat oven at 300 degrees. 
  • Mix the oats and nuts in a bowl. Set aside. 
  • Mix the honey, coconut oil, molasses, vanilla and all the spices in a bowl and stir to combine. 
  • Pour all the wet ingredients over the dry and mix gently by hand to coat everything evenly.
  • Spread out on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and place it in the oven.
  • Cook for 20 minutes and give the granola a good mix on the sheet pan. Cook an additional 20 minutes. 
  • Remove after 40 minutes and let it cool.
  • Break up the larger chunks by hand after it has cooled.
  • Serve on yogurt, in milk, or just as a crunchy snack!

Notes

Substitute olive oil, sunflower oil or canola oil for coconut oil. 
Substitute the nuts anyway you like. The key is the type of oats and the spices for this one. 
My batch made about four pints for gift giving! If you give this as gifts in the paper bags, place the granola in air tight Ziploc bags first to keep the granola fresh.  
Don't cook too much higher than 300 degrees as the ingredients don't have the opportunity to dry out and become crispy. 
Store in air tight containers to keep fresh for up to two weeks unless you freeze it.
