We are readying ourselves for our annual trip to Jackson Lake, and will definitely be bringing this granola along!
Eat All-Day Granola
(courtesy of Vicki Daines via Faith Wallis)
12 cups Quick Oats (One big 2 lbs 10 oz box)
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups coconut (either the traditional shredded or the raw, shaved kind you can purchase at Whole Foods)
1 tsp. salt
2 cups nuts (Whatever combination you like. Options include: pecans, almonds, pepitas, raw sunflower seeds, sliced or slivered almonds.)
1 1/2 cups canola oil
2/3 cup water
3 tsp. vanilla
Stir sugar and oats until well mixed. In a separate bowl, mix coconut, salt and nuts and then mix in oil, water and vanilla. Add to oats and mix well. Spread over two large rimmed cookie sheets. Bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. (It will be lightly browned, mostly around the edges.)
Press the granola into the pans really well for it to form together and break into big chunks. This granola is delicious! It is great to snack on, eat with yogurt and fruit or as a cereal with milk.
