Cherry and Pepita Granola


  • 2 c. The Fresh Market Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • ⅓ c. raw pepitas
  • ¼ c. sliced almonds
  • ¼ c. flaxseed meal
  • ½ c. honey
  • ¼ c. brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¾ c. dried cherries, chopped


Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a medium sized bowl, combine the oats, pepitas, almonds and flaxseed meal. Spread out onto a parchment lined sheet tray. Place in oven and toast for 10-15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes to keep from burning.

While the oat mixture toasts, combine the honey, brown sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon and salt in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until everything dissolves.

Remove oat mixture from oven and reduce heat to 300ºF. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly combine oat mixture, sugar mixture and dried cherries. Evenly spread out onto a parchment lined sheet pan. Bake an additional 30 minutes, tossing the mixture occasionally to promote drying. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
