Fruit & Almond Granola + Cookbook Giveaway

I love granola for much of the same reason that I have always loved granola bars – it’s hearty, sweet, and usually full of all kinds of great nuts and fruit. For a long time I bought granola at the store and stirred it into yogurt or would eat it by the handful as a snack. And then I discovered the joy that is homemade granola. I started making it out of necessity a few years ago when I was hampered by a nut allergy, which I had somehow grown into, and have since grown out of. Although I can eat nuts again, I have stuck to making it at home and believe I have finally put together a super-duper awesome recipe. It’s lightly sweetened, spiced, crunchy and full of almonds and dried fruit. And best of all – you can totally customize it with your favorite nuts and fruit!

I created this specific version of the granola for a cookbook project put together by Posit Science, called the Thinkfood Cookbook. Fifty food bloggers contributed recipes that included brain-healthy ingredients in every imaginable category including breakfast, salads, main dishes, snacks, desserts, and more. I have already made a few recipes from the book and everything has been fabulous! I thought that this healthy, homemade adaptation to an oft store-bought item made it a fantastic recipe to share, especially since it is packed with oats and nuts.

Each week a different blogger and their recipe is featured on Thinkfood’s site and Facebook page, as well as in their email newsletter. For a list of the participating bloggers and their recipes, check out the Thinkfood Cookbook site.

As a contributor to the project, I was given an extra cookbook to give away to a lucky reader! Details below on how to enter to win…

Fruit & Almond Granola Recipe

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

5½ cups traditional rolled oats (not quick oats)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ cup light brown sugar
¾ cup applesauce (I use natural/unsweetened)
¼ cup honey
1½ cups chopped or slivered almonds
¾ cup dried cranberries
¾ cup chopped dried apricots

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, cinnamon, ginger and salt.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, applesauce and honey until thoroughly combined.

4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix well, until all of the oats are moistened. Spread on the prepared pan in an even layer.

5. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the pan from the oven and turn the granola over very carefully using a wide spatula (you'll probably need to do this in sections). Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until crisp and golden.

6. Cool completely on the baking sheet.

7. Break up the granola into chunks and stir in the almonds, dried cranberries and apricots. Store in an airtight container.

    breakfast is by far my favorite meal! or to be more accurate, breakfast food is my favorite type of food, and i can eat it at any meal! 🙂
    if i had to choose, i’d say oatmeal for its versatility. but it’s also hard to turn down omelets, morning buns, pancakes, french toast, grits, and waffles…

    My favorite breakfast is oldfashioned oatmeal. You can vary the flavor daily. I put butter, raisins, strawberries, blueberries, ar any fruit in it. Also yummy is cinnamon, any jam or jelly, applesauce, or any of your favorites. Each day you get another flavor. I make mine in the microwave 1/2 old fashioned oatmeal with 1/2 cup water cooked for 2 1/2 minutes and you don’t have a pot to clean for one serving. You can add a little more water if you like. I like it thick as mud before I put in my special flavors. Enjoy!

    My husband doesn’t really cook much but breakfast is his specialty. I really love his bacon and the fried eggs that he fries in the bacon grease. Yum! I don’t eat that often however because I feel my arteries clogging everytime I eat that breakfast.

    I also love making cinnamon apple ebelskivers. Also very yummy!

    I go through phases with it, right now it’s fruit (mango and blueberries!) with seven stars organic whole goat milk yogurt and the new ancient grains granola (natures path from costco). it’s a little sweet but the plain yogurt balances it 🙂 This sounds like a great one- and no oil? that’s a first for me lol, will definitely make it.

    I recently started making Green Monsters for breakfast, and I love them! It’s a smoothie with bananas and chopped spinach as the base, and then you can add anything you like–I’ve been adding peanut butter, Ovaltine powder (malt flavour), and sometimes honey or flavoured yogurt. I know it sounds weird, but you don’t taste the spinach at all, and it’s a great way to get some extra veggies into your diet.

It was a toss up with oatmeal, but even all this past winter I would eat granola on yogurt everyday for breakfast. Can’t wait to try yours.

    Oatmeal – plain with a little salt. Is there any other “real” choice?

    My favorite breakfast food is fresh fruit salad. Although cinnamon rolls are pretty hard to beat, too!

    Sounds yummy – will try it this weekend. I ve made granola twice and LOVE it. Also love that the cereal dispenser weighs about two lbs. more than the one containing the toasty- o cereal!
    I also want to mention that I add the almonds/peanuts, etc before baking and the nutty flavor really stand out. I bake mine at 275 for caution against burning. No fun eating singed granola! Thanks for this recipe!
