Homemade Granola (Build Your Own)

Updated: Sep 2, 2021


I love this recipe because it's so flexible. You can make it work with whatever you have on hand. At the bottom I'll indicate my favourite ingredients to use.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups oats

  • 1/2 cup nuts

  • 1/2 cup seeds

  • 1 cup coconut (or bran flakes or more oats or nuts)

  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (optional)

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon (or other favourite spice)

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1/3 cup oil or melted butter

  • 1/3 cup sweetener (maple syrup or honey or sugar. Presumably agave or liquid stevia would work but I have not tried these.)


If you don't have one of the dry ingredients (nuts, seeds, coconut or dried fruit) you can just replace them with more oats. 


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl (mix well to coat dry ingredients.)

3. Spread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

4. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring every 8-10 minutes.


My Preference: Maple Pecan Cranberry Granola

Nuts: pecans (or almonds or walnuts)

Seeds: chia seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds (I like using a combination)

Dried Fruit: cranberries

Sweetener: maple syrup
