“This recipe will probably not rate as "low fat" because of all the nuts, but they're a healthy source of fat. In an effort to reduce the unhealthy fat, there is a minimal amount of butter in the entire recipe. It makes for a dry granola which is especially good for topping yogurt or as the topping for a fruit "cobbler". Feel free to swap out different fruits and nuts to suit your tastes. Enjoy!”
15 1/2 c servings

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 F.
  2. Combine oats through salt in a large bowl, mixing well. Melt butter and stir into honey in a small bowl. Pour honey/butter mixture over oat mixture and stir until evenly moistened. (You need a big sturdy wooden spoon or your hands.).
  3. Pour the granola onto two large baking sheets lined w/parchment paper and bake until cereal is evenly toasted, about 30-40 min total. Halfway through, give granola a good stir and return to oven until sufficiently golden brown.
  4. Once granola has cooled, stir in dried fruit. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
