Our Homemade Granola

Try it Yourself

Dry Ingredients:

  • 6 cups Quick Oatmeal
  • 6 cups Old Fashion Oatmeal
  • 14 oz (Large Bag) Coconut Flakes
  • 2 Cups of Sliced Almonds
  • 2 Cups of Dry Roasted Sunflower Seed
  • 1 Cup of Chopped Pecans

Other Ingredients:

  • 1 1/3 Cups Canola Oil
  • 1/2 Cups of Butter
  • 3/4 Cup of Molasses
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1/2 - 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 TBS Vanilla Extract (Add after boiling the above)


Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Cook other ingredients in medium sauce pan over medium until boiling. Let boil for a minute or so and then mix in 1 TBS of Vanilla extract. Poiur over dry ingredients and stir, stir, stir. Allow to set a bit. Bake on cookie sheet at 350 degrees. I do four batches and use a heavy duty cookie sheet so it's evenly spread out while baking. Bake for 10-15 Minutes, stir and bake 10-15 more minutes. Watch closely. You want the coconut to get a golden brown.

Place baked granola in a big bowl and stir frequently while it cools. If you don't it will turn into a big clump. After cooled, place in Ziploc bags and freeze.

This is the gluten free edition of this recipe. You can add wheat germ or flax meal. Just reduce oatmeal by a cup.
