Easy Healthy Homemade Granola Recipe
Updated: Oct 25
I love cereal in the morning. Being able to eat my own hearty granola recipe is even better. This is a recipe my family has been using for years. I usually make a triple batch. The first batch never even makes it into the cupboard and the other two last about a week.
6 cups oats
2 cups nuts
1 1/2 cups coconut
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chia seed (optional)
1/4 cup quinoa (optional)
1/4 cup flax seed (optional)
1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds) (optional)
3/4 cup syrup
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
The first step is to combine 3/4 cup of syrup, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, and 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a small bowl and mix well.
Next, Stir 6 cups of regular oats, 2 cups of nuts (I use walnuts but any kind will do.), 1 1/2 cups of coconut, 3/4 cup of brown sugar. The rest of the ingredients are optional depending on preference and what you have in your cupboard. I add 1/4 cup of each chia seed, quinoa, flaxseed, and pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds). Then, mix in the syrup mixture.
Spread mix on a shallow 11 x 15-inch baking sheet. Bake for 75 minutes at 250 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring every 15 minutes. Allow it to cool before placing it in an airtight container. Use within 3 months.
We eat it dry, in a bowl with milk, or over yogurt or ice cream. Enjoy!
