Coconut Granola

I LOVE granola, but the stuff at the store really isn't good for you at all. (Click HERE and HERE to read why) So I was excited to find this recipe in THIS book. We eat this healthy granola often as cereal or with yogurt. It is also good plain as a snack, especially with carob chips :)


8 cups rolled oats

1 tsp. sea salt

½ cup melted butter

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

½ cup melted coconut oil

1 cup freeze dried fine-cut coconut

1 ½ cups whole yogurt

2 cups chopped soaked and dehydrated nuts

2 cups water

1 cup raisins

½ cup raw honey (I’ve used 1 cup maple syrup with success as well)

Directions: Mix oats, butter, coconut oil, yogurt, and water together in a large bowl. Pat down, cover with a plate, and leave on the counter for 1-2 days (depending on your climate). Preheat oven to 200degrees. Place honey, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl and set in a small pot of simmering water until honey warms and becomes thin. Mix honey with oat mixture. Place on 2 parchment-lined cookie sheets and bake for several hours, until completely dry and crisp. Mix with coconut, chopped nuts, and raisins. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Serve with whole raw milk or cream diluted with a little water.
