(A Little Bit of) Everything Granola
Yields: 7 cups
 
As the name suggests, this granola is packed with a ton of wonderful ingredients that make it both super healthy and delicious.
Ingredients
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • ¾ cup raw pistachios
  • ½ cups coarsely chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seed
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed
  • ½ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • ½ cup honey, date honey, or maple syrup
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160C/325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. Mix all ingredients except for honey and dried cranberries together in a bowl until combined. Drizzle sweetener (such as honey) evenly on top and toss until evenly coated. Place on a baking sheet in one layer. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring the mixture gently every 10 minutes to prevent burning, and one more time during the last 10 minutes (3 times total). Let granola cool, then mix in dried cranberries. Store in an airtight container for up to a month.
Notes
- Usually, granola recipes call for a neutral oil such as canola to make it crunchy and keep it from becoming sticky. If you like, you can add ¼ cup oil to the mixture before baking (along with the sweetener).
- This granola contains lots of nuts, which I find to be delicious. If you prefer less, you can reduce the total amount to 1½ cups.
- Omit or replace ingredients (aside from the oats and sweetener) according to your own personal taste.
- If you add dried fruit or substitute them for the dried cranberries, it’s important that you add them to the granola AFTER baking.
