Yield 9 1/2 cups


  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup whole natural almonds
  • 1 cup unsalted peanuts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 cups chopped mixed dried fruits

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl stir together oats, coconut, almonds, peanuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a small saucepan melt butter and honey over low heat, stirring occasionally. Pour butter mixture over oat mixture and toss to combine well. Spread granola evenly in 2 large, rimmed baking sheets and bake in upper and lower thirds of oven, stirring frequently and switching position of pans halfway through baking, until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. In a large bowl combine granola with dried fruits and cool, stirring occasionally. Developed by Sara Moulton for the Grain Foods Foundation.
