Cherry Almond Granola

My brother David inspired this recipe for granola. He made a version of this cereal during a visit with our mother. I added tart, dried cherries and slivered almonds.

This version makes twelve servings of 54 grams. Store after completely cooled in a sealed container like a Mason jar for several weeks. You might need to shake up your storage container between servings to break up the sticky sweet granola.

  • 4 grams kosher salt
  • 300 grams Old fashioned oatmeal
  • 60 grams Slivered almonds

  1. Preheat oven to 325F.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large mixing bowl in a microwave until melted. Add honey, vanilla extract and salt to the bowl and mix until combined.

  4. Remove granola from oven and turn it with a spatula. Break up sticky clumps as you turn the granola and return to the oven to finish baking for another 15 minutes or until golden.
  5. Remove baking sheet from oven and fold in the dried cherries on the baking sheet. Allow the granola to cool for at least 30 minutes before eating.
