Fresh Coconut Maple Granola

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 884
Yield: 12 cups


1 fresh coconut grated
1 pound rolled oats
2 cups oat bran or additional rolled oats
1 cup whole or sliced almonds
1/2 cup sunflower seed
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup unrefined coconut oil
1 1/2 cups raisins


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Place all the ingredients except the dried fruit in a large bowl and mix well. (I usually mix with my hands.)
3. Spread the mixture in a thin 1/2-inch layer on an unoiled baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown. As it bakes, stir occasionally to ensure even browning.
4. Remove from the oven, add the dried fruit, and mix well. Cool completely before placing in an airtight glass jar and storing in the refrigerator, where it will keep about one month. In the freezer, it will keep up to six months.

For a Change . . .
* Instead of coconut, use 2 to 3 cups of another nut, such as chopped cashews, walnuts, and/or pecans.
