Homemade Yogurt and Granola

Delight in the freshness and goodness of choice ingredients in your very own homemade yogurt and granola.

Ingredients

For the granola:

  • 14 ounces rolled oats
  • 3 1/2 ounces honey
  • 3 1/2 ounces sugar in the raw
  • 3 1/2 ounces canola oil
  • 7 ounces mixed nuts and grains (almonds, quinoa, millet)
  • 7 ounces dried fruit (raisins, apricots, cranberries)

For the yogurt:

  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 ounce old yogurt
  • 1/2 vanilla bean

Preparation

For the granola:

Mix all the ingredients except the dried fruit and bake at 250°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes until golden brown. Fold in the dried fruit, then let cool.

For the yogurt:

Bring the milk to a boil, then let cool to 110°F. Add in the old yogurt and let sit overnight, undisturbed and covered, in a warm area. Let the yogurt cool for 4 hours, then hang in cheesecloth for 6 hours, or until it reaches desired consistency. Whip lightly with 1/2 vanilla bean.


Add the yogurt and granola together in a bowl. Serve with any additional fresh fruit you like.
