Homemade Granola Recipe

I'm not much into cooking so whenever I come across quick, easy to throw together recipe that is healthy, I am all over it! I make up a huge batch of this (and usually double the recipe) and it keeps for a long time in the fridge. This is a great snack sprinkled on Greek Yogurt and berries, great as a cereal, sprinkled over fresh fruit or eating straight out of the container.  Enjoy!

Makes 4 pints

3 C. Old fashioned rolled oats (don't use quick oats)
1/4 C. Sesame seeds
1/4 C. Sunflower seeds
1/2 C. flaked, unsweetened coconut
1/2 C. Sliced almonds (I buy them whole and crush them a bit in the morter and pestle)
2 T. Flax meal
1 C. Chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts)
1/3 C. Vegetable oil (I always use EV Olive Oil and it works great - doesn't taste different and is healthier!)
1/2 C. Local honey
1 C. Dried Fruit (blueberries, cherries, cranberries, raisin assortment, etc)
1 T. Vanilla Extract
2 t. Cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt

  1. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients except cinnamon.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat honey and oil until honey is dissolved and bubbly around the pan edges. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract and cinnamon. Stir well.
  3. Add all wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  4. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with oil and spread granola mixture over entire sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and delicious, stirring ever 10 minutes or so. Rotate the pan once during cooking.
