Homemade Granola Recipe for Earth Day


Earth day is celebrated on April 22nd; its a day to remember Mother Earth and the environment. Since this is a fairly new holiday, there are no set traditional foods that are served, but organic foods, foods without preservatives, and local foods that have no pesticides are very popular.

Homemade Granola is quick and easy to put together; once in the oven, it just needs to be stirred occasionally. This granola can be eaten as a snack, as a breakfast cereal, or as an ingredient in cookies and Fruit & Nut Yogurt Parfaits. Its a good idea to use all organic ingredients to make sure there are no pesticides or preservatives in your granola. It will be something you can feel good about serving to family members and eating yourself.

Homemade Fruit and Nut Granola


Makes about 12 cups, 24 1/2 cup servings

7 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups slivered almonds
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped cashews
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt

1 cup raisins
1 cup Craisins
  1. Preheat the oven to 250.

  3. In another bowl, mix the maple syrup, vegetable oil, and salt.
