Coconut Almond Granola, traditional baked or slow cooker directions!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Granola is so easy to make, and personalize for your family. Today we made Coconut Almond Granola. Generally, we choose not to put dried fruit in our granola, simply because we prefer to add it to the top of the granola in our bowl.

by the seat of my pants!
325 - 350 oven

6 c oats
1 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c coconut
3/4 c wheat germ
1 1/2 c sliced or slivered or chopped whole almonds
if desired - 1/4 c whole wheat flour (note WW flour will provide a very firm crunch)

1/2 c water
2 t vanilla
1/2 c coconut oil - melted

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add vanilla to the water and drizzle over dry ingredients. Next drizzle the coconut oil. Combine all ingredients until well mixed.

Divide between two large baking trays (jelly roll pans work well). Bake 25 minutes, stir well. Rotate baking pans, bake 20-25 minutes longer.

Important:  if your oven bakes "hot" you might choose to stir the granola at the halfway point, this will prevent over-browning of the oats on the bottom of the pan.

Note:  I like to turn the oven off on the last 10 minutes and leave the granola in the oven until cool, this makes very crispy granola!
