Oven Roasted Granola

Makes about 7 cups
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil softened
  • 1 cup golden brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1-1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup roughly chopped almonds
  • 1 cup dried currants

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the butter and coconut oil with the sugar until smooth. Then blend in the honey, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and cardamom.
  3. Use a large spatula to mix in the oats, oat flour and almond flour. Then fold in the almonds and currants.
  4. Pour the granola mixture onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and use your hands or a flat-bottomed metal spatula to flatten out the mixture. It should be about 1/2-inch thick and cover most of the sheet.
  5. Roast in the preheated 350 degree F oven until it's a dark golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on the baking sheet before moving on to the next step.
  7. Then you can use your hands to either make granola bars or or cereal.
  8. Keep this stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
