I have this recipe written on a post-it note and I have no idea where it came from or when I got it. I’ve been making it since I got married about 8 years ago so I imagine I found it sometime around then.
This granola is easy, quick and delicious. My husband asks me to make a batch for him to take to his office when he is in town, hence the name “Daddy’s Granola.”. This is a no-no for those with nut allergies however. So our darling boy has never tried it.
4 c. old-fashioned oats
2 c. sweetened coconuts
2 c. sliced almonds
1 1/2 c. chopped dried cherries or dried cranberries
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/3 c. honey
2 t. cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Spread mixture evenly onto a large baking sheet with sides. Bake for 25-30 minutes on the center rack, tossing granola once after 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet. Mixture can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
