Ingredients

Instructions

  • Melt coconut oil, honey, salt, and other spices/flavors in a medium saucepan.
  • When liquid mixture melts and becomes a bit foamy, turn the heat down to low, add the oats and stir to coat.
  • Add the nuts/seeds, and stir to coat.
  • Finally, add the dried fruit, and fold in to the mixture.
  • Continue cooking on low heat for just a couple minutes (this will soften the ingredients slightly before you cool them, allowing them to stick together better).
  • Meanwhile, line a small baking dish (mine measures 6″ by 8″) with parchment paper or plastic wrap, leaving the sides of the paper/wrap long.
  • Add the mixture to the dish; press with the back of a wooden spoon so it is evenly spread out.
  • Fold the parchment paper/plastic wrap over the granola so the top is covered (get more if necessary). Press the granola aggressively, so it is as packed as you can make it. I used my grill press, but you can also use a dish or cup, or your hands. Just make sure it is well packed and evenly distributed!
  • Place in refrigerator and allow to cool completely- at least two hours, but I recommend overnight.
  • Remove granola from parchment paper- it should be in one big block. Cut into 6-8 bars, and wrap individually in plastic wrap. Store in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
