Coconut-Cranberry Granola

My latest kitchen venture: Coconut-Cranberry Granola —– yum!  My kids are enjoying munching on it right out of the bowl. :)

Here’s what you will need:

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Here’s what you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a bowl, mix the oats, coconut, and almonds; set aside for a moment.  In a microwave-safe bowl, mix the honey, brown sugar, oil, cinnamon, and salt.  Microwave on high until sugar begins to dissolve, about 35 seconds.  Stir into oat mixture.
  2. Spread mixture on a rimmed baking sheet.  Bake until granola is golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.  Stir twice twice during baking.  When done, allow to cool, stirring occasionally.  Transfer granola to a bowl and toss in the cranberries.
  3. Divide granola into packages (I used Mason jars) for gift giving or store in an airtight container at home where it can be devoured.
