  • Bowl
  • baking sheet


  • 6 cups old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • ¾ cup unsweetened coconut you can use sweetened if you prefer
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Other add-ins of choice I used dried cherries, but really you can use whatever you like. Different dried fruits, nuts, etc. If you use chocolate chips, just make sure to add them after the granola is cooked and cooled.


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • If you are using it, line your baking sheet with parchment. You don't have to do this, but it makes cleanup so easy.
  • Mix all ingredients, minus the dried fruits and chocolate chips if you are using them, in a medium-sized bowl. Make sure to mix it well so the salt and vanilla are well distributed.
  • Pour onto a baking sheet and spread evenly.
  • Place in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes and mix or flip the granola to cook both sides.
  • Once it is golden brown, between 20-30 minutes, remove it from the oven.
  • Allow it to cool and mix in your dried nuts and chocolate chips if you are using them.
  • That is it. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!!
  • If you are storing this for long term, it stores really well in the freezer. Once it is cooled, I put it in a large ziplock bag, it holds well for several months.
