We can’t get enough of this granola! Ever since the recipe (adapted from Molly Wizenberg’s Everyday Granola, Bon Appétit, June 2010) was published, I make a batch probably every other weekend. We eat it five or six days a week. I have mine with Greek yogurt and strawberries and Tony has his with milk. It’s so easy. It makes your kitchen smell so good while it’s cooking and I promise, you’ll discover why Molly called it EVERYday granola! If you only read this blog once and make only one recipe, it should be this one.
PS…Molly is a regular contributor to Bon Appétit. This recipe appeared in her column “Cooking Life.” I hadn’t paid much attention to her prior to this (aaagh…sorry Molly!), but soon after, bought her book, “A Homemade Life” (which I LOVED!) and now follow her blog Orangette.
Homemade Granola to Eat Every Single Day
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup shredded cocount (I prefer sweetened; the original recipe calls for unsweetened)
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup assorted dried fruit (I usually use Trader Joe’s Golden Berry Blend)
Preheat oven to 300°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Mix first 7 ingredients in large bowl. Stir honey and oil in saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture; toss. Spread on prepared sheet. Bake until golden, stirring every 10 minutes, about 40 minutes. Place sheet on rack. Stir granola; cool. Mix in fruit. Store in an airtight container.
