Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 45 minutes | Total Time: 55 minutes
  • 3 cups
    quick oats
  • 3 tablespoons
    flax seeds
  • 3 tablespoons
    sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup
    raw pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup
    raw pistachios
  • 3/4 cup
    raw slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoon
    sea salt
  • 1/4 cup
    brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup
    unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons
    organic unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons
    agave nectar or local honey
  • 1 tablespoon
    real vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups
    dried cherries
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a saucepan, on low heat, melt the brown sugar, applesauce, agave nectar/honey, butter, and vanilla. Let it warm through so the sugar breaks down and all flavors incorporate.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the oats, cinnamon, salt, nuts, and seeds. Slowly drizzle the wet mixture on the oat mix and stir until all oats are covered. It should look pretty moist but not ‘wet’.
  4. Spread the granola in an even layer on a baking pan (also known as jelly roll pan; 1/2 inch sides). Place the rack in the middle of the oven and bake for 15 minutes, stir. Granola should take about 45 minutes to cook; continue to stir every 15 minutes for even color.
  5. Pull out the granola and fold in the dried cherries. Allow the granola to cool completely before adding chocolate chips or putting it in a container.
