Our most recent dietetic intern gave us all jars of homemade granola on her last day. It was good! She passed on the recipe to me and I made it this weekend. The finished product was a little more “golden” than I wanted, but it tasted good, and had good crunch. We have already added to to oatmeal and yogurt.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together oats, almonds, pecans, cherries, coconut, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine oil, honey and sugar. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Drizzle syrup over oat mixture. Toss with a wooden spoon. Pour granola onto baking sheet and spead evenly. Bake, stirring every 5 minutes, until light golden (about 20 minutes). Let granola cool completely on a wire rack. Break into chunks. Store in an airtight container.
