Expert Tips

You can make different kinds of granola using dehydrated fruits such as mango, pineapple, banana, raisins, dates, and pieces of chocolate, any kind of nut, vanilla extract and Stevia in place of the maple syrup, agave nectar or honey.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • 2 In a large bowl, mix the oatmeal with the coconut, almonds, oil and honey until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Spread the mix out on a baking sheet and stir occasionally with a wooden spoon until the granola is crunchy and golden brown, for about 20 minutes.
  • 3 Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • 4 Once cool, add the cranberries and peaches. Mix to combine with the granola. Serve immediately with fresh fruits and popcorn (and milk or yogurt). Once completely cooled to room temperature, store in airtight containers. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
