Sourdough  Granola Recipe

Prep Time

Total Time

25 Minutes


1. Preheat the oven to 325 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine together the starter, honey, vanilla and melted coconut oil.


3. In a large mixing bowl, combine together the old fashioned oats, nuts, seeds, spices, and salt. Do NOT add the dried fruit right now, it will turn hard when you bake it.


4. Add the starter mixture to the oat mixture and toss to coat evenly.


5. Spread the granola mixture onto the prepared pan and press into an even layer. It won’t reach all the way around the pan, and that’s ok, but make sure there are no holes in the middle, try to get it as even and together as you can.


6. Press it down with your hands so its in a single solid mass.


7. Bake for 20 minutes. The granola will continue to crisp up as it cools, so its ok if it seems not quite done when you pull it out. If its toasty and fragrant, its done. **see notes on website for information on if you should stir it or not.


8. Allow to cool, then break it into clusters.


9. Add in the dried fruit.
