Do you like Granola?

JoAnn_FlaDecember 20, 2012

I just found this recipe for Christmas granola if anyone wants to try it. Also makes a good gift.

Christmas Granola


4 cups Quakerî Oats (Quick or Old Fashioned, uncooked)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup raw, unsalted sunflower seeds (optional)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, melted
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
One 6-ounce package dried cranberries (about 1-1/3 cups)


Heat oven to 350ðF. Combine all ingredients except cranberries in large bowl; mix well. Spread evenly in 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan.

Bake 40 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 10 minutes.

Remove granola from oven; stir in cranberries. Cool completely in pan. Store tightly covered up to 2 weeks.


For Gift Giving: Spoon granola into airtight glass or plastic jars, canisters, cellophone gift bags (tie closed with ribbon) or empty oatmeal tubes. Ahead of time, paint designs on jars with paint markers or sponges and paint, cover oatmeal tubes with gift wrap, or decorate gift bags with holiday stickers.

6-1/2 CUPS

Sounds good, I may make it after Christmas. My husband eats store bought granola every day and it's expensive.
