Basic Granola Cereal


A filling recipe for those with sensitive stomachs (I find it is easily digested).  This is called a “basic” recipe because there are many substitutions (type of nuts, dried fruit, amount of honey, etc.) that you can make to suite your tastes.  


4 c. rolled oats

3/4 c. shredded, unsweetened coconut

1 c. chopped walnuts

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 c. almond butter

2 T butter

1/8 c. water

2 tsp vanilla

1/4 c. honey (Use local when possible!)

1/2 c. raisins

You may also add 1 c. raw wheat germ if you are not concerned about gluten.


Preheat oven to 350.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix the almond butter, water, vanilla, honey, and butter over low heat until all ingredients well incorporated.  Mix the dry ingredients (excluding raisins) in a large bowl.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix.

Spread on the parchment paper and bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 3-5 minutes (watch closely, as it burns quickly).

Let cool.  Add raisins.  Enjoy!

I like to enjoy with unsweetened organic coconut milk with a few drops of liquid stevia.  You may also add to yogurt to make your snack more filling!
