Christmas Morning Granola

Made with cranberries and pecans, this is a healthy but yummy breakfast choice for the holiday season.
Servings: 4 packages


  • 8 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cups whole pecans
  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1 cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Measure the oats, coconut, nuts, seeds and brown sugar into a large bowl.
  • Combine the honey, oil, vanilla and salt in a pot and warm up on the stove, stirring constantly. Warm just until all the elements are mixed evenly, then pour the hot mixture over the oat mixture. Stir well to ensure all of the oats are covered.
  • Spread the mixture onto a few greased cookie sheets and toast in the oven for 1 hour. Remove the granola from the oven every 10 minutes and stir so that it toasts evenly on all sides.
  • Once cool, mix in the cranberries and raisins.
  • Fill 4 frosted tin tie bags with the granola and add labels.
