My first tome having granola that I really liked was last Christmas. It wa delicious! I’ve had granola before… But not like this. This was amazing! Cherry almond granola. My mom’s friend Linda brought us a big bag and I basically ate the whole thing. I’ve been obsessing over it since and I finally got the recipe!

4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups sweetened, shredded coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
1 1/2 cups dried cherries, chopped
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup good honey
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

One problem… I didn’t have all the dried fruit that’s supposed to go in it… But next time I make it I will definitely have the dried cherries. Yumm

preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

So here I started with granola chopped almonds and coconut 🙂 *this is also where i would have tossed in the cherries!


Then I whisked up some honey and vegetable oil

I then poured the liquid over the granola mixture stirred and into the oven it goes! bake for 25-30 min until golden brown. pull our and let cool until ready to eat!

I wrapped mine up and added it to a late Christmas gift 🙂
