Chef Craig Flinn's Granola in a Jar

A great gift for anyone who loves to do a bit of baking and enjoys the sweet and nutty taste of granola in the morning. The great thing here is that you can assemble these ingredients and make several gifts at once... easy peezy lemon squeezy!


  • 8 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Sliced Almonds
  • 1 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1 cup Raisins
  • 1 cup Chopped Dried Apricots
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Allspice
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ cup Melted Butter
  • ¾ cup Maple Syrup or Honey




  1. Simply toss all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  2. When you melt the butter in a small saucepan, add the honey or maple syrup to the pot and heat it as well.
  3. Drizzle it over the dry ingredients, toss well, and lay the mixture on a few cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 10 or 15 minutes at 350 F tossing the mixture around every few minutes.
  5. When it is toasted brown, remove and let cool completely before filling your mason jars.
