  • 4 cups old-fashioned oats not quick cook
  • 1 cup shredded coconut sweetened
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • cup walnuts lightly chopped
  • cup cashews lightly chopped
  • 1 orange zested
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil
  • cup honey
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Preheat the oven to 325
  • Using a large bowl combine the oats, cranberries and shredded coconut.
  • Lightly chop the walnuts and cashews, add them to the bowl with the oats.
  • Zest the orange, set aside
  • Add the vegetable oil, honey, brown sugar and salt to a small saucepan on the stove. Place over medium heat.
  • Warm this mixture until the brown sugar and salt dissolve, stirring often. Once it dissolves, remove from the heat and stir in the orange zest.
  • Drizzle the mixture over the mixture in the bowl. Stir well and make sure every oat and nut is completely coated.
  • Spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread out into an even layer.
  • Place in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the granola is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. Break into crunchy bits and store in a glass container. This freezes great and is also a terrific gift!
