Our Favorite Granola Recipe

Tina Verrelli – epicuricloud.com


3 3/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not instant or quick), divided

½ cup ground flaxseed meal or wheat germ

1 cup raw almonds

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon coarse kosher salt

½ cup coconut oil, melted

½ cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla


You can add whatever you like!

This is what I usually add:

½ cup raisins

½ cup golden raisins

½ cup dried cranberries


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Prepare a half-sheet baking pan by lining with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.

Using a food processor or blender, grind ¾ cup of the oats to make oat flour.  (I use my KitchenAid 3.5-cup Food Chopper.)

In a small bowl or measuring cup combine the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla.

In a large bowl combine the oat flour, the remaining 3 cups oats, flaxseed meal, almonds, cinnamon and salt.  Pour the liquid mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. 

Spread on prepared baking sheet and press the mixture flat with a spatula. 

Bake for about 20 minutes, then, use a spatula to turn the mixture over.  Press down to flatten again with a spatula.  Bake for another 25 minutes.  Turn off oven, prop door open slightly and allow to cool in the oven for an hour. (This will help to form nice chunks.)

Remove from oven, and cool completely.  Add whichever add-ins you’d like and store in an airtight container.
