Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. degrees
  • In a small bowl mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, honey and oil. Set aside.
  • Mix the dried cranberries and raisins in a small bowl and pour the orange juice over the dried fruit and toss. Let them soak while you're mixing up the rest of the recipe.
  • Into a very large bowl mix the oats, nuts, 1 cup of coconut and orange zest. Toss until everything is evenly distributed.
  • Pour the brown sugar mixture over the oats mixture and toss to evenly coat all the oats and nuts. If it seems a little dry add some of the orange juice and mix. Start out with about 2 tablespoons of the orange juice and adjust. You don't want the granola soaking wet.
  • Divide between two large baking sheets. Do not add the cranberries and raisins yet.
  • Bake the granola for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Half way through the baking time pull the sheets out of the oven and toss.
  • Remove the granola from the oven. Drain the cranberries and raisins. Divide the fruit between the two trays and toss.
  • Cool slightly and add the ½ reserved coconut and toss again.
  • Allow granola to cool completely before storing in an airtight container or packaging up in individual holiday packaging.

Recipe Expert Tips
  • Cooling: Granola may seem a little damp after baking. As it cools the last of the moisture will evaporate.

  • Serving: Homemade granola can be sprinkled over yogurt, eaten out of hand as a snack or added to oatmeal or cereal.
  • Gifting: Homemade granola can be packaged in jars or bags and added to a gift basket.
