Recipe of the Month: Camp Stevens Home “Grown”-ola

Makes 6 cups


4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup sliced almonds or cashews
1/2 cup shredded coconut (preferably unsweetened)
1/4 cup unsalted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds) or shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup pure agave syrup
2 tablespoons canola oil/sunflower oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup flax seeds
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup dried fruit (We like currants and dried cranberries!)


  1. Heat oven to 325° F. In a bowl, toss the oats, nuts, coconut, flax seeds and pepitas with the maple syrup, oil, cinnamon and salt. Transfer to rimmed baking sheets.
  2. Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 15 – 20 minutes. **At 10 min. toss and check crispness.
  3. Add the dried fruit and toss to combine. Let cool.

  2. I has this granola at the women’s retreat recently, and it’s the best I’ve ever had — not greasy, not sweet; just right. I like it over Greek yogurt or out of hand as a snack.
