Smoked Trail Mix Granola

Trail mix is a must have for the "trail" of course, but it's also nice to have around for a healthy snack or quick breakfast parfait with yogurt and fruit. In this recipe, adding a hint of smoke to the oats gives the granola a deeper flavor profile. If looking to add even more smokiness, the nuts, butter and honey can also be smoked. 


Smoked Trail Mix Granola

3 cups old fashioned rolled oats

1 cup sweetened coconut

1 cup chopped almonds

1 cup chopped peanuts

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup honey or maple syrup

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/3 teaspoon salt

1 cup dried apples

1/2 cup cashews

1/2 cup dried cranberries or cherries

1/2 -1 cup of dark chocolate chips or chunks 


Prepare Little or Big Chief Smoker by filling the pan half-way with wood chips. Always make sure clean foil lines the smoker pan to avoid off-flavors. Preheat smoker until chips begin to smoke.

Place rolled oats on a double layer of teflon screens atop a smoker rack. Spread oats out into a thin layer. If desired, put honey and/or butter in a shallow dish and place on a smoker rack. Smoke 30 minutes using about 3/4 pan of chips.
