Cinnamon Orange Nutty Granola

There is nothing like homemade granola, and it is super simple to make. Cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest adds wonderful flavor. We use various nuts but you don’t need to use them all – just pick your favorites. It keeps well in the fridge or the freezer and you can just pull out what you want any time.

8 cups oatmeal (not instant)
1/4 cup slivered or sliced almonds
1/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly ground or powdered
3/4 cup coconut sugar*
2 teaspoons maple syrup
3 teaspoons agave syrup
1/2 cup coconut Earth Balance*
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons sea salt
orange zest

  • Mix all ingredients in bowl. Mix well to coat.
  • Spread granola out 1 inch thick in pans. Bake in oven at 225 degrees for 2 hours, tossing every 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, let cool.
  • Store in freezer or refrigerator until ready to eat.

Total cooking time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Serves: 8-10

There is reason to buy cleaning supplies - baking soda, bleach, vinegar is all you need!

No, thanks. One portion would make me ten kilos fatter.

Looks great, thanks for sharing. I already make my own muesli -1.25lbs (approx.) porridge oats, a couple of handfuls raisins, 30 sliced prunes, 30 sliced apricots, 0.5 bag dessicated coconut, approx. 100g hazlenuts. Soak in milk for about 30 minutes, or overnight.
