Homemade Granola

This is a really easy recipe for granola. It tastes much better that what we had been buying at the grocery store, and it is considerably cheaper.

6 cups rolled oats
1 & 1/2 cup shredded sweet coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 & 1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar. In a separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Combine both mixtures and pour onto 2 sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color. Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. Store in airtight container.


  1. Well, I love granola and this sounds really good. I just may have to give this a try.

  2. I made this yesterday. Yum! I can't wait to try it again with things like sliced almonds. Thanks for the recipe.
