Easy Homemade Granola

We love breakfast at our house.  From fried eggs, scrambled eggs or breakfast casserole to pancakes, banana bread or cold cereal with fruit, we love it all.

My Mom’s granola recipe is the best ever because it’s a great basic and easy recipe. Since I’m not the very best planner in the world, I often modify Mom’s recipe to work with what I have on hand.  I make granola different every time and it’s always delicious!

Easy Homemade Granola

  • 6 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup flour {I use spelt}
  • 1 cup nuts {walnuts, pecans etc}
  • 1 cup seeds {sunflower, pumpkin etc}
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 T. cinnamon
  • 1 t. sea salt
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil or melted butter
  • 1 generous T. vanilla
  • 1 cup dried fruit, soaked in water {craisins, raisins}

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix liquid ingredients {I measure and mix the liquid ingredients in a 2-cup measuring cup} and pour over dry. Stir until well coated.

Place granola mixture into two lightly sprayed 9×13 baking dishes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes; stir and add craisins. Bake another 20-25 minutes or until evenly golden. Cool and store in an airtight container.

    Homemade granola is so much healthier and less expensive than store bought. I also like rolling oat groats so it makes the oatmeal super fresh.

    I have this baking in my oven right now. It smells fantastic in my house. I add wheat germ to mine. And since my hubby has a sweet tooth I added some brown sugar as well.

    Just made your Mom’s granola recipe! My daughter-in-law, Jenny Howard, referred me to your website awhile ago, but after viewing the pics of the recent wedding, I realized that I know your parents! Went to BJU with them, but that was a lot of years ago. Your Mom was in my society, I think. Tell her that Beth Ashbrook Howard said “hello”! BTW, used coconut butter in the granola. I think it’s going to be good!
