Kitchen Sink Granola

Homemade granola has never been easier! This Kitchen Sink Granola has all the things! Good things! Lightly sweetened with raw organic honey, brown sugar syrup, and a hint of brown sugar. Chock full of nuts, seeds, and coconut flakes for texture, nutrients, and a bit o' protein. Finally, apple butter and warm spices to observe fall!


  • 3 cups Oats old fashioned, not quick cooking
  • 1 cup Slivered almonds
  • ½ cup Peanuts
  • ¼ cup Walnut
  • ½ cup Sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons Flaxseed
  • ½ cup Sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground nutmeg
  • 1 scant teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons Brown sugar packed
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup Apple butter
  • ¼ cup Brown sugar syrup
  • ¼ cup Raw honey
  • Good splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Raisins
  • ¾ cup Dried blueberries
  • ½ cup Dried cherries


  • Preheat the oven to 300° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a very large bowl combine oats, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, sesame seeds, flax seed, sweetened flaked coconut, spices, salt, and brown sugar. Mix to combine the ingredients and set aside. In a small saucepan, briefly warm the coconut oil, apple butter, brown sugar syrup, raw honey, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix until the dry ingredients are well moistened. Pour the granola on the baking sheet. Flatten and even out. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so with a pair of tongs to prevent burn spots and ensure even baking. Remove granola from the oven and allow it to cool completely. Granola will crunch as it cools. Mix in the raisins, blueberries, and dried cherries. Once completely cool, store in an airtight sealed container or mason jars. Granola will keep about a month.
