Amish Homemade Granola
This is a sugar-free, healthy protein granola cereal recipe with oats and honey and lots of nuts. It is so delicious to eat with milk for breakfast, or to use for yogurt parfaits.
- 12 c. rolled oats it's basically a full 42 oz. tub
- 2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 c. sliced almonds
- 1 c. chopped pecans
- 1 c. chopped walnuts
- 1/3 c. flaxseed
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 3/4 c. olive oil
- 1 c. honey
- 2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 tsp. maple flavoring
In a large bowl, stir oats, coconut, nuts, flaxseed, and cinnamon together.
Combine oil and honey in a saucepan and heat until honey is melted. Add salt, vanilla, and maple flavoring. Stir and add to oat mixture, stirring to combine.
Pour onto a large cookie sheet pan or two 9x13 cake pans.
Bake at 275° for approximately 1 1/2 hours, or until the desired doneness. Stir several times while it is baking. (If you prefer chunky granola - do not stir until it is completely cooled.)
Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
This granola recipe is very versatile. You can add vanilla protein powder for extra protein, and any other additions that you prefer. Some great additions are raisins, craisins, chopped dates, cashew pieces, sunflower seeds, pepitas, chia seeds, etc. Wait to add dried fruit until the granola is cooled.
I use flaxseed meal, but you can use the seeds if you prefer.
This recipe makes about 4 1/2 qt. I store mine in an ice cream bucket.
