November Recipe | Winter Granola

One of my favorite homemade recipes is Granola! It's so easy to make, you can make a bunch to last a while and you can make it with ingredients that you love. 

I just received Tara Stile's new cookbook in the mail two days ago and after sitting and reading it cover to cover, I was SO inspired. She has a great recipe in her book for granola and after a little time in the kitchen, I had myself a container full of yummy, crunchy goodness to last us a week or two. I am not sure it will last two though ;)

I made a few changes to her recipe using pantry items I had in the house. I highly recommend you pick up her new book!

Winter Granola


4 cups of organic rolled oats (I purchase mine at Trader Joes)
1/2 c. raw, roasted whole almonds (again, Trader Joes)
1/2 c. of dried cherries (you guessed it, Trader Joes)
1/2 c. of pumpkin seeds (do I need to say it?)
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted (Costco! - you can get a huge container for $20)
1/2 c. pure maple syrup (straight from Vermont, thanks to my in-laws)
1 tablespoon of Cinnamon (Penzey's Vietnamese Cinnamon)
1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice (Penzey's)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (I love the bourbon vanilla extract from Trader Joes. Are you surprised?)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, dried cherries and pumpkin seeds. Stir well. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave and drizzle in the bow. Mix until well incorporated. Warm the syrup (we store ours in the freezer, it never freezes) and drizzle in the bowl. Mix until well incorporated. Add the spices, mix and then finally add the vanilla extract and mix. 

Line a sheet pan with foil, spray with coconut oil spray or use a paper towel to rub melted coconut oil on the foil. Spread the granola evenly on the sheet pan. Bake for 25 minutes. I like to stir and spread the granola back out at 10 minutes out. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Store in a glass container.

Enjoy on it's own, or with greek yogurt. As for me, I will be having a bowl of this with cold almond milk for breakfast!
