Homemade Pecan Molasses Granola with Coconut and Cranberries

Have you ever tried making homemade granola? I did for the first time the other week and a couple more times since. It so easy and super delicious (way better than the store bought kind). I adjusted a recipe I saw in Everyday Food to this one:
Pecan-Molasses Granola with Coconut and Cranberries

1/3 cup molasses
1 1/2 T vegetable oil
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t ground cloves
1/2 t salt
3 cups rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1 cup pecans roughly chopped
1 cup dried cranberries or other berries

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix together oil, molasses, salt and spices. Add in oats, coconut, pecans and cranberries. Stir gently until well incorporated. Spread evenly on a baking dish and cook for 15-20 minutes turning once halfway through. Let cool completely.


Heya! I'm new to your blog (and blogging in general!) Just wanted to say 1) this recipe looks delicious! and 2) I'm so happy to have discovered your blog – it rocks! Keep up the good work,Ellyse

Kristin, it's true. Controlling what goes in it feels so good!

I made homemade granola a lot last winter, but the truth is that I like the store bought stuff better. Now that I'm working more, I'm not sure if I'll start making it again.

I started making granola last winter (off an Everyday Food recipe nonetheless) and haven't stopped since. I just make Pumpkin granola last week and it's been such a nice fall addition to breakfast!

it's raining in salt lake…so since i'm stuck inside, i want to try this! it looks delicious and i LOVE granola!

mmm! i haven't made my own granola forever…it's time to do it again. this looks delicious!
