Moose's Great Granola - Recipe Revealed!

One of the most asked about foods made by Seyon Lodge Innkeeper, JessieMae, is a recipe called "Moose's Great Granola". You might wonder where “Moose” factors into this. Don't worry, no moose meat is in this granola. Moose was a nickname JessieMae gave her mother as a teenager and it stuck! Friends and family still lovingly call JessieMae’s mother "Moose" today.

This is a great recipe to do with family and friends and a perfect snack during long hikes or when you're out camping this summer.

Moose’s Great Granola
• 3 cups regular rolled oats
• 1 ½ cups chopped nuts of choice
• 1 cup dried cranberries (or raisins)
• 1 cup shredded coconut
• ½ cup butter melted
• 1/3 cup honey

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Mix the oats, nuts, cranberries, and coconut in a bowl. In a saucepan melt the butter and honey together until combined. Stir into the dry ingredients and spread onto a sheet pan. Bake for 7-10 minutes and then stir, then bake another 5 minutes and stir again. Keep an eye on it and stir every few minutes until it is golden brown and you can smell it. Watch out, it burns quickly!

Enjoy your Moose’s Great Granola and keep an eye out for the real animals when in Vermont State Parks. They’re tough to spot!

    thanks for sharing!

  2. I prefer to add my dried fruit after baking as to keep it from drying out too much. Thanks for the recipe.
