Coconut Granola Recipe

From the Book, Eat Fat, Lose Fat

Mary Enig and Sally Fallon were given this recipe by a Weston A. Price chapter leader, Sonja Kepford. Unlike a typical granola recipe where oats were used in the recipe straight from the package, these oats are soaked in a yogurt and coconut oil/butter mixture for two days to ferment the oats to make them more digestible. The resulting granola has a nice yogurty tang.

Granola is high in calories, so it is not good for weight loss. Keith and I have small helpings (3-4 teaspoons) each morning with raw milk or yogurt, prior to going to the fitness club.



Coconut Granola

8 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup melted raw butter
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1-1/2 cups whole yogurt
2 cups water
1/2 cup raw honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup coconut sprinkles*
2 cups chopped crispy nuts*
1 cup raisins
Mix Oats, butter, coconut oil, yogurt, and water together in a large bol. Pat down, cover with a plate, and leave on the kitchen counter for 2 days.Preheat oven to 200 degrees.  Place honey, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl and set in a small pot of simmering water until honey warms and becomes thin. Mix honey with oat mixture.

Place on 2 parchment-lined cookie sheets and bake for several hours, until completely dry and crisp. Mix with coconut sprinkles, chopped nuts, and raisins. Store in airtight container.

Serve with whole raw milk raw cream diluted with a little water. Also, great used as a yogurt or ice cream topping.

*Crispy Nuts and Coconut Sprinkles recipes can be found in Sally Fallon’s cookbook, Nourishing Traditions available from NewTrendsPublishing.

  2. Remember, according to science writer Gary Taubes, it is not calories that put on weight; it is carbohyrates. Sugar , or starch that becomes sugar, such as in oats, causes a release of insulin. It is insulin that drives fat into cells. When I make granola with a similar recipe, I substitute palm sugar, stirred into the melted coconut butter, for a sweetener. According to nutritionist Alana Sugar, it will not cause our bodies to release insulin nearly as much. You can purchase this sweetener at health food stores. Janice Curtin

  3. thanks Kimberly, I have lost my copy of Eat Fat, Lose Fat (wahh… ordering another one now) and really wanted to make this for my daughter. She is not an egg lover so this is the perfect breakfast for her…
