Weekend Blueberry Granola

IMG_4764

Classic granola takes a ride on the wild side teaming up with dried wild blueberries in this easier-than-you-think homemade granola. The ingredients are simple, but the melange of flavors is complex: savory toasted almonds, sweet honey and blueberries and hints of cinnamon and vanilla. I like to make it the night before so we can just roll out of bed on Saturday morning and build up parfaits in a snap.

Ingredients:

  • 3 c Old-fashioned oats
  • 1 c Raw almonds
  • 4 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • Generous pinch of salt
  • 1/3 c Honey
  • 2 tbsp Unrefined virgin coconut oil (Whole Foods)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 3/4 c Dried wild blueberries (Trader Joe’s)

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine in a bowl, oats, almonds, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Combine in a saucepan over low heat, coconut oil, honey and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture and use your hands to evenly cover oats. Turn out onto prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, tossing the granola every 15 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Remove pan from oven, place on a cooling rack and stir in dried blueberries. The granola will take on a crunchy texture as it cools.

Serve with Greek vanilla yogurt and fresh fruit. Store in an air tight container.
