Actually, you REALLY don't want this recipe. As you can see, Corban doesn't think you will like it either...well, or maybe he just knows it is really AWESOME!
My blogger friend, Amy, posted this recipe last week! I couldn't wait to try it! And, I have to say, "WOW" because this stuff is really good!
Watch out for this oatmeal fiend! This kid loves to eat it raw. He has a scab on his head from sneaking into the pantry and hitting his head on the shelf. Crazy kid! He informed me today, "Mom, Oatmeal is made out of banana sausage." Now doesn't that sound appetizing?!
4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
2 cups sliced almonds
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup good honey
1 1/2 cups small diced dried apricots
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup roasted, unsalted cashews
(I substitute different things sometimes like: raisins and pecans)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Toss the oats, coconut, and almonds together in a large bowl. Whisk together the oil and honey in a small bowl. Pour the liquids over the oat mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until all the oats and nuts are coated. Pour onto a 13 by 18 by 1-inch sheet pan. (Use parchment paper)
Bake, stirring occasionally with a spatula, until the mixture turns a nice, even, golden brown, about 45 minutes.
Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add the apricots, cherries, cranberries, and cashews. Store the cooled granola in an airtight container
Crustless Coconut Pie
Mix together 2 cups shredded sweetened coconut, 3/4 cup flour, 1 1/4 cup sugar, then whisk 4 whole eggs, 2 cups of milk, 1 tsp. Vanilla, & 6 Tbsp. melted butter. Pour into two greased pie pans. Bake at 350 for 34-40 mins. or until golden brown on top!
The verdict is still out on this one...I'll let you know after dinner tonight! I know, I know. You can't believe that I would post a recipe that I haven't tasted and isn't on the healthy list...well, this is me, I also serve new recipes I haven't tried on dinner guests too.
Hmmm...we don't have very many dinner guests. I always just thought it was because no one wanted to hang out with Joshua!
