Chunky Homemade Granola

Chunky Homemade Granola

This granola is great for boosting energy and is high in iron! It can be used as a snack, cereal for breakfast, or a topping for a fruit and yogurt parfait dessert.  The added raisins and apricots provide lots of iron, vitamin A, and carbohydrate.

Ingredients

3 cups (750 mL) – Rolled Oats
½ cup (125 mL) – Raw almonds, slivered
3 Tbsp (45 mL) – Wheat germ
2 Tbsp (30 mL) – Coconut oil, melted
¼ cup  (60 mL) – Maple syrup
1 cup (250 mL) – Raisins
1 cup (250 mL) – Dried apricots, chopped
½ Tbsp (8 mL) – Cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and place rack in the center of the oven.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, almonds, wheat germ, apricots, raisins and cinnamon.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the melted coconut oil and maple syrup.  Pour over the dry ingredients and toss together, making sure that everything is lightly coated.
  4. Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently so the mixture browns evenly.
  5. Store granola in an airtight container.

Makes 24 servings (30g / serving).
