Homemade Cherry Berry Granola

Ingredients

Homemade Cherry Berry Granola

  • 5 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 Tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries

Directions

Homemade Cherry Berry Granola

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Combine oats, nuts and sesame seeds (if using) in a large bowl and toss to combine.

In a small bowl, stir together melted butter, honey, vanilla extract and salt.

Pour honey mixture over the dry ingredients and toss until evenly combined. Spread the mixture onto prepared baking sheet to create one even layer.

Place baking sheet in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Granola will be fragrant and golden at the edges when cooked. Remove baking sheet from oven and, use a rubber spatula to gently press the granola into the pan. Allow to cool completely.

When completely cool, use a spatula to begin gently breaking the granola into pieces. If preferred, dump the entire pan into a large bowl and break granola into pieces with your hands. Add the strawberries and cherries and toss until evenly mixed.

Granola will store for up to three weeks in airtight containers.
