How to Make the Easiest Granola. Ever.

December 29, 2016


Store-bought granola usually is loaded with refined sugar and can be higher in fat then other cereals. When made right, granola can be a healthy food option to sprinkle on top of yogurts, add to chopped fruit, or just enjoy with milk! 

Here is my go-to recipe. By using whole grains, healthy fats, and no refined sugar, this granola packs a punch! Feel free to add your own touch by adding or deleting items. 



Basic Granola

Makes 12 ½ cup servings




4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)

1 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)

1/4 cup unsalted seeds such as flaxseed, chia, hemp, pumpkin, or sunflower 

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 tablespoons canola oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup dried fruit such as cherries, cranberries, blueberries, or raisins




Heat oven to 350° F. Toss the oats, almonds, coconut, and seed of choice with the maple syrup, oil, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour on a lightly greased rimmed baking sheet. Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. Add the dried fruit and toss to combine. Let cool.
