Tight Wad in Utah: Best Granola I've made yet!!

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Best Granola I've made yet!!

This was REALLY good!  And the magical ingredient is shredded coconut!  I always thought coconut was pricey, but I found a bag at Smith's on sale for 79 cents!  It was regularly .99 so no biggie.

Cinnamon Raisin Granola (I changed a couple things)

4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 c shredded coconut
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1/4 c vegetable oil
1/4 c honey
1 t ground cinnamon
1 1/2 vanilla
1 c raisins
chopped almonds to taste
In a large bowl combine coconut and oats
In saucepan bring to boil: honey, brown sugar, oil, & cinnamon
remove from heat and stir in vanilla
pour over oats and stir
spray baking sheet with cooking spray
spread out mixture

Bake at 350 for 15 - 20 min, stirring occasionally
cool and add raisins
store in an air tight container

This batch I made is already gone, there might be a bowl's worth left.  I'm gonna have to fight for it around here! Note: This post may contain a sponsored/affiliate/referral link. Thank you for supporting this site!

Mmmmm... I make one that is very similar and eat some every night! I love it and my husband thinks it hurts his teeth- so I get it all to myself! :)

I've tasted this famous granola...and I can vouch for its tastiness. I'm gonna try to make it - and hopefully it will come out just as good.
