Cherry Almond Coconut Granola

solar oven granola

This recipe will work best when you are getting higher temperatures in your oven, it is a good opportunity to get those reflectors out!  Granola is a very flexible recipe. The chia and hemp seeds are optional and add protein and nutrients. Feel free to add in any other nuts, fruits or other favorites.

solavore granola

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup almonds, chopped
3 cups oats
1/4 cup chia seed
1/4 cup hemp seed
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup dried cherries or raisins

Place coconut oil, honey, almond extract and vanilla in a small saucepan. Stir and heat mixture to a low boil. While the liquids are heating, combine all of the the dry ingredients except the cherries in a large bowl. 

Line a 9 by 13 inch baking pan with parchment paper. Pour the boiling liquid in to the dry ingredients and stir until well coated. Transfer the granola to the lined baking pan and spread it out in an even layer. Place the pan in your preheated Solavore Sport. The granola will take approximately an hour to bake; ideally you will see a little bit of browning (using reflectors will help with browning).  When you remove the granola from the oven, let it sit until cooled. Once cooled, break in to clumps and add in the dried cherries. Store your granola in an airtight container.
