Homemade Granola, with old-fashioned oats, nuts, cinnamon, coconut flakes, and a melted butter and honey coating to make the crunchiest honey flavored oat clusters! This granola recipe is a healthy way to add nutrition to your breakfast and tastes like Honey Bunches of Oats Cereal!
12 cupsrolled oats
1 1/2cupsunsweetened coconut flakes
1 1/4cupswheat bran(can use freshly ground whole wheat flour with its bran)
1 1/2 tspvanilla
In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients.
Meanwhile bring the liquid syrup to a boil over medium heat. Pour over the dry mix and toss to coat.
Divide the oat mixture into two lined 18x13 sheet pans.
Bake uncovered at 275°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring once or twice in between. Turn off the oven, stir gently, and allow oats to cool down in the oven. (I left mine in for about 2 hours they turned out super crisp and clumpy.)
Brown Sugar: can be left out. Just add 1/2 cup more of honey or other favorite sweetener.
Nuts: use pecans, sliced almonds, sunflower seeds, or a mixture.
Dried Fruit: can be added after the oats have baked.
