Yield:
12 cups
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 cups sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup good honey
  • 1 1/2 cups small diced dried apricots
  • 1 cup small diced dried figs

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Toss the oats, coconut, and almonds together in a large bowl. Whisk together the oil and honey in a small bowl. Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated. Pour onto a 13 by 18 by 1-inch sheet pan. Bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a nice, even, golden brown, about 45 minutes.

Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add the apricots, figs, cherries, cranberries, and cashews. Store the cooled granola in an airtight container.

Made this tonight & it is awesome!!  I did decreased the honey and added maple syrup, added cinnamon and vanilla extract.  I cooked it like the recipe instructed and it did not burn.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe last night and it is AWESOME!  I had to hide it because my family wouldn't stop eating it!  If you burned it you used the wrong oats.  They are NOT created equal.  I cooked the whole 45 minutes and it did not burn.  I used pecans instead of cashews.   item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe came out BURNT!! Try Gabrielle Corcos' recipe from Extra Virgin....he uses a touch of coconut oil and toasts it at 275 for 30 minutes...,,comes out PERFECT EVERY TIME!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
<span>This is a fantastic easy recipe. I did not have any issues with cooking, I did watch it and turned as directed. I will reduce the oil next time and maybe add a little more honey. I tried it with walnuts and added extra fruit.</span> item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe for granola is super easy and absolutely delicious. The reviews that are negative are because the granola was not cooked properly. This is not a recipe where you can put it in the oven and walk away. You have to check on it every 10 min or so and turn with a spoon. My oven cooks fast so I cooked at 325. Also it did take closer to 35 min rather than 45 min, but if you are checking on it then you should be fine and shouldn't have burnt granola. Mine was perfectly crisp and delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wish I would have read the reviews before making this. Confused as to why so many would rate it 4 stars when there is an obvious error in the instructions. Mine burned like so many others. One star for this expensive disaster. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have tried many granola recipes and this was by far the best. I am reading the reviews and there are a lot of complaints about cooking time and burning. I wonder if those reviewers inadvertently used quick cooking oats, or thinner cuts of nuts, etc. I only stirred mine twice, cooked as directed, and it was toasted perfectly! Go Ina and thank you for this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Meh. It was an okay recipe. I didn't have any issue with crisping, because the mixture never became soggy in the first place. I was hoping for large chunks of granola, but I guess the photo doesn't show that either. As for cooking time, the trick is to use raw nuts &amp; take the mixture out of the oven once your kitchen is filled with the wonderful aroma of roasted nuts. At 350, that was 6 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty recipe, but there must be a typo on the cook time and temperature. Mine burnt after 15 min. I tried it again by lowering the temp to 300 and cooking it for 25 min...stirring frequently. Also, you can lower the amount of oil used and add brown sugar if you like a sweeter granola. It crisps up nicely once it cools. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A good base recipe but definitely look to the reviews to make this a 4-5 star recipe. Like many others I reduced the temperature to 300 and put a piece of wax paper on the baking sheet which really made all the difference. 30 minutes at 300 degrees and turning every 10 minutes seems to be the key; and like other people said, the granola will crisp up while cooling and not in the oven. A few tweaks to the recipe: I added walnuts instead of almonds or cashews (but that's a personal choice) and I reduced the amount of oil to 1/2 cup and added a bit more honey. Also a dash of cinnamon and 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla extract really tied everything together. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My first batch following the temperature and timing instructions ofcooking the granola at 350 degrees for 45 minutes turned out to be a moist, expensive, way over toasted mess! Following the suggestions of other reviewers and a friend, the recipe turned out PERFECT making only a half batch for the recommended cookie sheet size, using a little less oill, my friend's recommendation of lining the cookie sheet with cooking sprayed parchment paper which prevented any burning at the edges and allowed for ease of stirring, and baking at only 300 degrees with stirring every 10 minutes. After 40 minutes of cooking and allowing the granola to cool, crunchy perfection! item not reviewed by moderator and published
not good at all...i am so upset because I love all Ina recipes...I should have paid more attention to the reviews people put in here, but I was trying to do a quick fun activity with my 4 year old. It is way too high of a temp and too long to cook. If that was fixed I bet the taste would be good. I would guess 275 even or if you do 350 for like 20 mins. I didn&amp;#39;t realize that it gets its crunch when it is cooling. I kept it cooking waiting for it to crisp up...Still well below the recommended time to cook... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I&amp;#39;m over this recipe. I&amp;#39;ve tried it multiple times and something goes wrong every single time. The first time I made it, it was burnt black. The second time I adjusted the time/temp and it was only slightly burnt. This time I adjusted time/temp again and the granola never got crispy. I baked and baked it and let it cool multiple times and its wet and soggy. The recipe definitely has too much oil. I&amp;#39;m giving up and finding a whole new recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a good basic granola. I added vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, switched some of the honey for real maple syrup, sprinkled in some coconut and added 1/3 c. brown sugar after reading other reviews that it wasn't sweet enough. I'm surprised Ina didn't "bump up the volume" on this one, I had to do it. Way off on time and temp. Bake at 300 and watch carefully in 10 min. increments. item not reviewed by moderator and published
There must be a typo on either the temp or time because I pulled this out at 30" and it was slightly burnt. However, it was still edible. The flavor is good so I'll be playing around with this recipe til I perfect it but at least I have a starting place. I hate to rate one of Ina's recipes so low but if I hadn't had my eye on it all those ingredients would've been wasted. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made smaller batches of this recipe quite a few times eliminating the oil, slightly increasing the honey, decreasing the amount of dried fruit (they're full sugar adding vanilla. Below is my version 2.5C oats, 1C sliced almonds,3/4C shredded coconut, 2/3 C honey, 1/4 t salt, 1t vanilla, 1/2 t almond extract' 1.5 C dried fruit, 3/4 C chocolate chips optional. Toast first three ingredients at 350 until lightly browned - approx. 10 min. Remove &amp; decrease heat to 300. Meanwhile heat honey, extracts &amp; salt on stove top in pot large enough to mix all ingredients. Once honey is liquified add toasted ingredients. Mix in dried fruit &amp; chips. Spoon into 9 x 10 pan...so the mix is about one to two up inches thick. Bake approx 25 min at 300. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Is the oven temperature and/or baking time a misprint? I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes and it still burned. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE this recipe. My family LOVES this recipe and we devour it. You won't be disappointed. Ina never lets me down! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made only 1/2 the recipe and it was good but I almost burnt it. I had to take it out after about 10 minutes. I think the 45 minutes was a typing error. I would turn it to 300 next time and watch it closely after 10 minutes. I added crystalized ginger like the kind I've bought at Trader Joes and raisins. Yummy. I use Ina's recipes a lot and this was the first one that didn't work as written. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Cooking time is too long. After 30 minutes I took it out of the oven because it would've burned. Could've been a little sweeter. But adding the dried fruit probably added that extra needed sweetness. Good recipe otherwise. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this several times, and we love it, so easy to make. I switch up the additions often and love it with yogurt, and fresh berries. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This came out to be excellent- I made it for my students to snack on before a big exam! One thing I would change is the coooking time- I felt it roasted for a little too long- the mix was very dark; I also boiled some honey and threw it on after the mix had cooled for a little exrta sweetness!! Would make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent - and it makes a GREAT gift!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made three batches. The first was per recipe and it was sort of bland. Second and third I added a third cup of brown sugar to the dry and some vanilla to the wet. Smelled wonderful and very tasty. I also varied the nuts and fruit and reduced the coconut by half in the second and third batches. Definitely worthwhile to reduce the temp...I dropped to 300 which made a big difference in controlling the time and burnt edges. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Over the top as per Ina she is one of the best.Every thing she gives you is very easy and more then simple to do.Love Love this Lady..The Iris Lady item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! It's so versatile and delicious. I change fruits and nuts according to what's on hand and it always turns out great. Do not omit the coconut though. It really adds texture and sweetness. I do reduce oven to 250 and stir every 15 minutes for 1 hour. It also helps to line the pan with parchment paper. Serve over Greek yogurt and fresh berries. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe!! I never thought I could make my own granola!! Seriously, this is very simple and easy. I took the advice of some other posters and decreased the temp of my oven to 325 and I take it out every 10 min or so and stir it thoroughly - that is the hardest part really. I also have used unsweetened coconut and added walnuts then I increased the amount of honey to 1 full cup. Excellent recipe, I change up the dried fruit as well from dried mangos, cranberries, cherries, raisens, whatever YOU like. Very easy, simple and delicious recipe!! Oh yeah, be sure to use the Old Fashion Oats... I used the quick cooking kind the first time and although they were tasty, definately not very crispy and kinda almost mushy. Well worth using the Old Fashion Oats. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I looked for several different Granola Recipes but when I compared them this sounded simple and good so I tried it. I have never made my own granola before......OH MY OH MY. You MUST try this recipe. I followed it exactly except used a blend of dried fruits from Costco. Unbelievable !! I eat it ever morning sprinkled over ZOI honey Greek yogurt. I gave little samples out to my co-workers. I have printed out this recipe 15 times it got so many raves.....the beauty of it is, you can change up the basic recipe to whatever you want. Really, you will not be dissapointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This granola is very tasty. But like a few others mentioned, you really have to check it every couple of minutes. I think mine went about 2 minutes too long and the coconut was a little too dark. I only baked it for about 30 minutes. Otherwise, very tasty combo and will be great in yogurt! item not reviewed by moderator and published
tastes great. But recipe should be altered. I cooked the oats for 25 minutes and even that was probably 5 minutes too long. And switched the oil and honey amounts. Makes a very large amount. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is excellent! Grandkids even liked it. I will make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe made excellent granola; friends were having seconds and asking for the recipe. I did cut the recipe in half and it came out perfectly in about 15-20 min. My suggestion is to check on the granola in the oven every 5-10 minutes to avoid burning. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used quick cooking oats and I used raw coconut oil. I used only one cup of nuts and replaced the other cup of nuts with 1/2 cup whole buckwheat. I thought it was too sweet last time so this time I replaced 2 tbs of the honey with a banana and only used 1/2 cup coconut oil. I also added in 2 tsp of cinnamon and added my coconut at the end since I don't like toasted coconut...it was done in 20 mins...I just looove this recipe..it's a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this has become a staple in my house. Occasionally I add different dried fruits for a change or use the base for granola bars for a quick healthy snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As with many recipes adjustments are according to your personal taste. I really liked the recipe but would lessen the oil next time and I substituted the cashews for whole toasted almonds (used the thin sliced almonds as called for); didn't have dried figs but added the other dried fruits and I really like it. As others mentioned, it needs to be stirred occasionally and I liked how it crisped up. I cooked it about 50 minutes....my oven doesn't cook fast at the designated temp. I will definitely make again. GREAT for holiday gift-giving. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a big fan of grannola, but this one sounded really good and I generally have good luck with BC recipes. I read the reviews while my first batch was in the oven(I cut the recipe in half, just in case),and I'm glad I did because I caught it before it burned. It was in 20 mintues. Tossed it around a bit and did another 10 min.then turned the oven off a let the granola dry a bit. It's about to rain today so the air is humid. I think it's going to affect the crunchiness. We'll see. Thank you Jerry-18etc and ErinK. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Excellent. Whole family is excited when I make this. Make sure don't use the paper thin almonds, but rather slivered almonds, or they will burn. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent granola - if you stir every 10 minutes and bake it only 30 minutes. Baking for 45 min. is way too long - it goes from golden brown to dark brown and tastes like burnt toast. The second time we made it, we only made a half recipe since the full recipe makes an awful lot, and we'd rather make a smaller batch that can retain it freshness, We thought the sweetness was fine with 1/2 cup of honey - especially considering the sweetened coconut is very sweet. We would consider using only 1/2 cup of oil as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not usually a granola fan, but I made it this year for gifts. It was beautiful in glass jars and delicious. I did increase the amount of honey slightly, lowered the heat to 325, and reduced the baking time to about 25-30 minutes. It turned out golden and crunchy...until I placed in airtight jars. The next morning my granola was soft and slightly sticky instead of crunchy. What did I do wrong? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tried this today and while I've made granola in the past, this turned pitch black and burnt in just 15 minutes at 350. Cannot recommend it at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sooooo good. I went ahead and followed the advice of other reviewers and swapped the measurements for the oil and the honey. Also, I didn't bake it anywhere near the 45 min. I baked for 10 min and stirred, baked it another 10 min and stirred, and then took it out of the oven. I cut the oven off and after both the mixture and the oven cooled down I put it back in to sit in the heat. It worked...I can't stop eating this granola! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It looked so good and easy to make...so I had a go at it. I sent bags with my friend's children, to a week long summer camp and they came back raving how terrific it was. BC recipes are always a hit, no matter what the age group. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this granola would be better considering the reviews. But honestly it was ok. I thought it was too dry......the nuts did burn a bit but also the coconut did. I have made a homemade granola before by cooking on the stove top and using a little butter and the flavor was so much better and moist. I'm glad i tried this, but i will stick with granola on the stovetop. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a really great recipe. Suprisingly sweet, considering there is no white or brown sugar. The changes I made were that I used only 1/2 cup oil and 3/4 cup honey. It seems to make it stay in clusters a little more, which makes it easier to snack on by itself. I also used pecans instead of cashews and 4 cups of various mixed dried fruits. I was able to find a bag of Shaved coconut which has larger pieces that hold up very well. I have never had a problem with this recipe burning. You do have to watch it and stir as instructed. I do use parchment paper to bake this on which makes clean-up a breeze. Enjoy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this granola several times using sliced almonds and no part of it has ever burned. You must take a large spatula and toss it every 10 minutes or so to get the underneath areas exposed to the heat so it "evenly" browns. I bake it at 350, but I do only let it go for about 35 minutes(but this will depend on your oven). I pull it out when it is a uniform light golden brown. It is wonderful with the ingredients in the recipe but you can also add whatever dried fruit you have on hand. The final product has a moist texture(not your typical boxed crunchy kind) and it only gets better after a few days. It is really good on greek yogurt with honey on top. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am one of those people who feels like if a recipe is on Food Network it should work. Well...I followed the recipe except I used whole almonds and no coconut. I only cooked for 30 mins and it is burned. I think maybe 300 degrees for 20 mins would work better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
When i saw the recipe, i knew the nuts would burn. Then I read the reviews and turned the oven down to 300. I also saw many references to the oil content after assembling my ingredients, so I added a big handful of extra oats. It turned out OK, but next time, Alton Brown. I know his recipes are tried and true. This experience makes me miss the OLD Food Network years ago. You know, when it was more about the recipes and less about entertainment. There has to be a balance here. How can such obvious flaws in recipes continue to make it to the web-site and on the shows? Maybe a lttle less time with the background music and wardrobe, and a little more time on the reason the shows exhist, the recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this granola on yogurt or as a take along snack in the car or hiking. It keeps well and makes an awesome gift. This Christmas I am packaging it in saved jars, covered with labels that are copies of drawings my kids made. It's a simple, hand-crafted, non-sweet gift that I think my friends will enjoy. I have never had a bad Ina recipe and don't think I ever will. If you haven't made her turkey meatloaf, try it. Makes an awesome tiny foccacia sandwich with radiccio and garlic mayo for parties. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best granola i ever made. I use to make it in work bag it and sell it. My customers beg me to make it again. I was making about 25 pounds a day. I just couldn.t keep up with it. To much in demand Shirley item not reviewed by moderator and published
yum, yum. I used half quantities which was loads, and used agave nectar instead of honey. I used the basic oats, coconut and almonds with oil and agave but added different fruits and nuts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
SPENT A SMALL FORTUNE FOR ALL THE INGREDIENTS. COOKING WAS SO EASY................THE SLICED ALMONDS BURNT, RUINING THE GRANOLA. WILL ABSOLUTELY MAKE THIS AGAIN, USING WHOLE ALMONDS. LEFT OUT THE FIGS AND CHERRIES AND ADDED MACADAMIA NUTS AT THE END. SO GOOD. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm only giving this 5 stars because I LOVE Ina. Now, I really consider myself to be a total Ina-obsessed person who LOVES the show and everything she does......but.....I ruined this recipe. It immediately burned when I put it in the oven, which really bummed me out. Anyway, I'm not giving up hope and will certainly try this recipe again. And the worst part is that I read the previous reviews before attempting it and didn't heed the advice. Oh well, live and learn. Maybe next year's Labor Day Party Weekend with all the boys will see homemade granola for breakfast. they will love it.....if I can just get it right.

This is the first time I made homemade granola and it is so much better than store-bought.

I am a HUGE Ina Garten fan. I may go so far as to say I want her life. Every recipe and idea I have implemented has come out to perfection. It pains me to give this review. This recipe was a major disappointment. The first time I made it I burned it. I looked away for a second and all of those costly ingredients were wasted. I started all over again only to be disappointed with the end results. The granola was ladened with oil, the cashews added were tasteless due to the method of adding so much oil. I wanted something sweeter, with spice and definitely with a big crunch and lots of clusters. This recipe had none of that. Use the suggestions from other readers to tweek the recipe. I am moving on. I found a recipe from Alton Brown and Mark Bitman that I may use. Bitman toasts the nuts and oats on the stove first before he bakes it with honey/maple sryup and cinnamin and cardamon. Has anyone tried these? I think I will once this batch is gone. Lucky for me I live with all men who are athletes, so they'll eat anything. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe makes the best granola. I do agree with other reviewers, though, who suggest that 350 is too high a cooking temperature. I lowered the temperature to about 300 and stirred every 10 minutes. Watch it carefully and remove when it begins to brown. There will be carry-over browning when the granola is removed from the oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This granola is TO DIE FOR! Easy to make, although the cost of the ingredients can add up... at least in my region. Once you open the container, it will be hard to stop until it's all gone! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a hit with everyone I shared it with! I did modify the recipe a bit.

I made the granola, but I really prefer one with more clumps. With the addition of more honey, I have fine-tuned it to the way me and my family like it.

This granola is very good--tastes great with milk, yogurt or just plain. I carry a ziploc bag with me when I travel--makes a great snack. I have made teh granola several times and have never left it in the oven the full 45 minutes, it seems to cook much faster and I prefer granola on the lighter side--and keep stirring as the edges tend to burn. I go a little lighter on the oil. This makes a sizeable batch of granola. You will love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
