Author: Lainey


  • 4 cups rolled oats*
  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews*
  • cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup coconut flakes
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup water


  • Preheat oven to 275° F and line a large baking tray with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • Roughly chop cashews to thirds and halves. 
  • In a large bowl, add dry ingredients and mix until combined. 
  • Next add water, olive oil, and toss until evenly distributed.  The granola will look slightly moist.
  • Dump granola on the tray and flatten into an even layer. Do not press down firmly and leave air space as much as possible.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, then stir to redistribute granola and bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring 2-3 times until granola is a dark golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.  Granola can be stored for up to 1 month.


*Use old-fashioned rolled oats, not quick cook or steel cut.
*Always use raw cashews and untoasted coconut or they will over cook and become bitter during the baking process.
