Community Recipe from


  • 3 cup(s) old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking/instant)
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) sliced almonds
  • 1 cup(s) shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoon(s) sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoon(s) melted butter
  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 cup(s) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) honey
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoon(s) vanilla
  • 1 cup(s) mixed dried fruit (raisins, craisins, blueberries, cherries)


  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In large bowl, combine oats, nuts, coconut, sesame seeds & cinnamon.
  3. In medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, olive oil, sugar, honey, salt & vanilla. Pour over oat mixture & combine.
  4. Turn mixture onto a (large) greased baking sheet. Place into oven.
  5. Set timer for 10 min. Stir every 10 min. until well toasted, about 40-50 min. total.
  6. Remove from oven; stir in dried fruit. Granola will crisp up as it cools. Break up into small crunchy nuggets. Store in glass jar or resealable plastic bag.
  7. :-) NOTE: I successfully substituted Grape Nuts cereal when I ran out of sesame seeds.
