4 1/2 cups


  • 1 cup 100% apple juice

  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup almonds

  • 1 cup pecans

  • ½ cup raw cashews

  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas)

  • 1 cup unsweetened raw chip coconut

  • ½ cup snipped dried cherries or unsulfured dried apricots, and/or unsulfured golden raisins (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with parchment paper. In a small saucepan bring apple juice to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, until reduced to 1/4 cup. Stir in honey, oil, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon.

  2. In a bowl combine nuts and pumpkin seeds. Working in batches, in a food processor cover and pulse nut mixture until broken into smaller pieces, adding coconut at the end to break up slightly. (Some nuts will remain nearly whole.) Transfer to a large bowl. Drizzle with juice mixture; toss to coat. Spread in prepared baking pan.

  3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until golden, stirring two or three times. Using parchment paper, lift granola out of pan; cool on a wire rack. If desired, stir in dried fruit. Store at room temperature up to 2 weeks.
