Holiday Granola Jars

Here’s a delicious, homemade present you can gift to loved ones, neighbors, or even co-workers: Hint of Coconut Granola.  Place it in a jar, add a layer of dehydrated or dried fruit, and tie it with a festive bow. A hand written personal note will only make the gesture so much more meaningful.

From all of us at Full Plate Living, may your Holidays be full of cheer, and we wish you a happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year!

  • 7 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

Place dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and toss. Place water, oil, brown sugar, salt and vanilla in a small bowl and allow the sugar to dissolve.  Pour over the dry mixture and toss gently with your hands until well coated.  Spread on a cooking sheet and bake at 250 degrees until golden brown.  Gently turn with a spatula and brown on this side.  You may turn off the oven and leave the granola to dry out overnight.  Store in a sealed container up to 2 months.  ENJOY!
