Here’s my latest — long-delayed, I realize. Apologies for a crazy few months getting in the way of posts to Veg Here!

I continue to experiment with granola. My colleague had given me feedback on the last batch that it was too wacky. What she really loved in granola was a hearty, healthy, wholesome flavor profile. So, in honor of her (her initials are CBA), I made this mostly fruit and nut variety. I added a little dark rum to punch up the flavors, but otherwise this is a classic version.

Cranberry Blueberry Almond Granola

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup dried shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/8 cup dark rum
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup dried blueberries

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix oats, almonds, coconut and brown sugar.
  3. In another bowl, mix agave, rum, vegetable oil, salt and vanilla.
  4. Mix together dry and wet ingredients.
  5. Pour mixture out on a cookie sheet and spread evenly.
  6. Cook granola for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. The granola should be evenly browned and toasty smelling.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  8. Stir in cranberries and blueberries.
  9. Store in a cool, dry place.
  10. Enjoy!
