Almond, Coconut, Cherry Granola

Granola has always been a favorite in our family. Either with milk or yogurt, it is always a delicious breakfast…or lunch…or (if you’re like my mom) dinner!

There are many different kinds of recipes out there, and even already-made packages of granola at the grocery store…but there is just something about homemade granola that makes it just a bit more special! Our favorite recipe is our modified version of Ina Garden’s recipe. It’s quick and easy and tasty!










Almond, Coconut, Cherry Granola


4 cups old fashioned rolled oats

2 cups sweetened, shredded coconut

2 cups sliced almonds

1 ½ cups dried cherries, chopped (I used about ¾ cup because I don’t really like too many. Okay, okay…I forgot to check the amount needed for the recipe before going to the grocery store. Oops!)

½ cup vegetable oil

1/3 cup honey

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350°F

Toss the oats, almonds, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Toss the coconut and cherries together in a medium bowl. Mix together the vegetable oil and honey. Pour about ¾ of the oil and honey mixture on the oat mixture and the remaining oil and honey on the cherries and coconut mixture. Stir until both mixtures are coated with the liquids. Spread oat mixture onto a baking sheet pan. Bake for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut and cherries. Continue to bake for another 10 minutes. Again, stirring occasionally.

Enjoy! xoxo
