Chunky, Crunchy Homeade Granola

granola parfait

 

I love waking up to the smell of granola in the oven.  We made this recipe on the 3ABN Today program so I thought I would share the recipe with you. It is delicious in a bowl with fresh fruit or in a granola  parfaits with the Vanilla Pudding I posted a while ago.

Granola

Dry Ingredients

  • 12 cups rolled or quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup whole grain flour
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds or a combination)

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups  water
  • 1 to 1 ¼ cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  1. Preheat oven to 200°F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Mix wet ingredients together in a separate small bowl.
  4. Add wet mixture to dry mixture. Mix gently with a spoon or your hands until all of the ingredients are moistened.
  5. Spread onto two large baking sheets.
  6. Bake overnight (6 to 8 hours) or bake at 300°F for 2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.
