Almonds are a wonderful source of protein, healthy fats, fiber, and iron. They are also high in vitamins E and B. And don’t forget about the added benefits of honey!


  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raw slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup raw whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup liquid honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup dried apricots, roughly chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Stir together the oats, almonds, pistachios, chia seeds, cinnamon, and sea salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Microwave the coconut oil for about 30-45 seconds in a glass measuring cup. Stir in the honey and vanilla. It won’t mix completely. This is OK. Pour the honey mixture over the oats and stir until evenly coated.
  4. Spread the mixture on a large baking sheet in a thin layer* (use two pans if necessary. I used one 10×15-inch jelly roll pan).
  5. Bake for one hour, stirring every 20 minutes. During the last 20 minutes of baking, stir in the dried apricots and dried cranberries. Cook granola until the oats look nice and golden.
  6. When you remove the granola from the oven at the end, don’t stir it right away! The granola will form crunchy clusters as it cools.


I recommend going without parchment paper for this recipe. It will crisp up WAY better!

This granola stores well, in an airtight container, at room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks or keeps in the freezer for several months.
