Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 12 servings
- 4 cups old-fashioned oats (not quick-cook)
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1 cup shredded coconut sweetened
- 1/3 cup walnuts lightly chopped
- 1/3 cup cashews lightly chopped
- zest from one orange
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup honey
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 325
Using a large bowl combine the oats, cranberries and shredded coconut.
Lightly chop the walnuts and cashews, add them to the bowl with the oats.
Zest the orange, set aside
Add the vegetable oil, honey, brown sugar and salt to a small saucepan on the stove. Place over medium heat.
Warm this mixture until the brown sugar and salt dissolve, stirring often. Once it dissolves, remove from the heat and stir in the orange zest.
Drizzle the mixture over the mixture in the bowl. Stir well and make sure every oat and nut is completely coated.
Spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread out into an even layer.
Place in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the granola is golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Break into crunchy bits and store in a glass container. This freezes great and is also a terrific gift!
