This quick and easy homemade granola is a like a good bag of trail mix—but even better! Salty peanuts, dried cherries, and fat flakes of toasted coconutmake up the mix-ins, while an egg white is added before baking to keep this batch full of snackable clusters. Lastly, a combination of olive oil, honey, and brown sugar infuses every cholesterol-busting oat with a wholesome sweetness.


  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup dried unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts

  • cup honey

  • cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ cup packed light-brown sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 large egg white, beaten

  • ½ cup dried cherries or cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. On a rimmed baking sheet, stir together oats, peanuts, coconut, honey, oil, sugar, salt, and egg white until thoroughly combined. Spread in an even layer to edges of sheet. Bake, stirring every 15 minutes, until golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes.

  2. Stir in cherries, and bake 5 minutes more. Let cool completely before serving or storing.
