Good Morning // Homemade Granola

Tuesday, June 18, 2013


Good morning from Okinawa!


I made Cam homemade granola yesterday afternoon and it could not have been more easy, delicious, or cost-effective. It also makes your house smell wonderful while baking, and is a fantastic gift to give in a mason jar.


I hope you enjoy this morning with some yummy granola and yogurt..


...while we get ready on this side of the world to go to sleep.

And thank you all so much for the encouragement yesterday. 


Homemade Granola with Coconut Oil
{makes about 10 cups}

4 C rolled oats {I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free}
2 C chopped raw almonds
2 C chopped raw walnuts
3 C chopped mix of dried figs, dates, mango, papaya {please feel free to use your favorite dried fruit}
1/2 C coconut oil
1/4 C honey

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the dried fruit. Spread the granola mixture on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 10-20 minutes, or until the granola is as browned as you would like it. Once out of the oven, return to the large bowl and combine with the dried fruit. Once the granola has cooled, store in an airtight container or mason jars. It should hold for about 2-3 weeks. Enjoy!

  6. I start every day with yogurt and granola -- thank you for posting a recipe! I made my own last summer (http://thegirlwithbrightblueeyes.blogspot.com/2012/05/gallery-yesterday-i-created-my-own.html), and would love to tweak it based on yours. :) Just saw your post from yesterday, too. So many prayers being sent your way! Your own struggle to trust God -- and the gift you have shared by expressing it here -- inspire me to be more trusting in Him, too. Thank you! xoxoxo

  7. This recipe came at a great time! I was talking today that I wanted to make homemade granola to eat for breakfast and now I can. I'm glad that you're able to find these ingredients in Japan, because I'm going to be moving there in a month or so and I would still like to be able to make granola :)
