Ingredients


Makes 24 servings

4 cups rolled oats

2 cups salted, skin-on peanuts

1/2 cup sesame seeds

1/2 cup large-flake unsweetened coconut

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup safflower oil

1/2 cup honey or agave nectar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups golden raisins

Make this easy granola on the weekend, then enjoy it for breakfast (as a cereal or in yogurt parfaits) and after-school snacks all week long.

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Set out two rimmed baking sheets.

2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, peanuts, sesame seeds, coconut, and salt. Add the oil, honey, and vanilla extract and toss until all ingredients are coated.

3. Transfer the mixture to the two baking sheets, using a spatula to distribute it evenly. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lightly golden. Allow to cool completely.

4. Add the raisins to the cooled granola. Transfer the granola to an airtight container and store for up to a week.
