Granola: Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (175 degrees C) and place
rack in center of oven. Either butter or line a baking sheet with
In a large bowl combine the rolled oats,
coconut, nuts, ground cinnamon, and salt.
In a small bowl, stir together the melted
butter (or oil), and maple syrup (or honey). Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and
toss together, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated with the liquids. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 25 - 30
minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally so the mixture browns
evenly. (The browner the granola gets (without burning) the crunchier the
granola will be.) Place on a wire rack to cool. You
will notice that the granola may still be sticky when it is removed from the oven
but it will become crisp and dry as it cools. Make sure to break up any
large clumps of granola while the mixture is still warm. Once the
granola has completely cooled, store in an airtight container or plastic bag in
the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks.
Makes about 4 cups of Granola.
For the Granola Trifles:
For each individual trifle; place some granola in the bottom of your glass
or bowl, followed by a spoonful of yogurt, then
some fruit, and, if you have room, repeat the layers. Use as much or
little, as you like, of each ingredient.
