Cranberry fig granola will give your morning an energizing boost! Toasted oats, sweet shredded coconut, figs, cranberries, raisins, almonds, and mixed seeds. Vegan.
I don’t think most people realize how EASY it is to make your own granola. I’m talking 5-minute prep! Add ingredients, mix two bowls, dump on a tray and your done! The oven does all the work for you. I use to pay $5-$6 for a small bag of organic granola from the store. NEVER AGAIN! It costs me $1 for the 3 cups of organic rolled oats that I needed for this recipe, only one buck! This will be enough for breakfast for the week.
I already had all the nuts and seeds in my pantry that I wanted to add to the granola. I get most of my nuts, grains, and seeds from the bulk section at my local health food store. If you have a store like that close to you, definitely check it out! You can get a much better price on organic nuts, grains, and seeds if you buy them from the big dispensers in the bulk section.
Do you see those figs! I diced them up into little bite-sized chunks and added them with the cranberries and raisins after I baked the granola and removed it from the oven. The figs add a sweet, chewy texture to the granola.
I loveee to put warm granola over yogurt and load it up with chunks of mango or eat it like cereal with milk. I added chia and hemp seeds to the granola so you will get a boost of energy from your breakfast. You can feel really good about eating this granola for breakfast!
Cranberry Fig Granola
Dry Ingredients -
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 3 dried figs, chopped
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl except for the cranberries, raisins, and figs. Combine all wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Line a tray with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Pour the granola mixture onto the tray and spread it out evenly. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
- When you take the granola out of the oven, try to break it up into big pieces because it will harden quickly and then it will be hard to break. It will feel slightly soft but it will crisp up as it cools.
- Add the cranberries and figs to the cooled granola.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container.
