This is a recipe that has been on the blog for a while but needed to be revisited after our trip to Wyoming!
I love granola!
So when I learned that The Bunnery in Jackson was famous for their granola, I, of course, had to try it. . .and subsequently fell in love! :-)
And then I had granola for almost every breakfast the rest of the time we were in Wyoming!
While, I wish that we had a Bunnery here in Texas . . .
this homemade granola recipe is pretty amazing!!
(adapted from the Cherry Almond Granola from Peace Meals)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 c sunflower seeds
1 c dried cherries
1 c sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 c Rice Crispies
1/2 c almonds
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir together the oil, honey, brown sugar and vanilla in a small saucepan over low heat until blended and the sugar has dissolved; keep warm. In a large bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients. Add the warm oil-honey mixture and stir until the granola is well coated. Spread the granola on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 to 32 minutes or until golden brown, stirring halfway through. Cool completely, then loosen from the baking sheet and crumble. Store in an airtight container.
Makes 8 cups.
