Homemade Granola

On busy summer mornings, this tends to be my go-to breakfast. It’s gluten free and all you have to do is add milk or yogurt and fruit! Delicious! My go-to egg/sausage dish is here.

Homemade Granola

7 cups oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 cup coconut
1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350*

Heat only the oats for 10 min. (use any size pan or bowl that works with some extra room for stirring)
Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl and wet ingredients in another.
Stir dry ingredients into the oats thoroughly. Then mix in the wet ingredients.
Bake for 20 min more stirring every 5 min.

Let the granola cool in the pan, stirring every so often while it cools to keep it from sticking.

Feel free to add or subtract ingredients based on your tastes. Sometime I’ll add raisins after it cools and during some seasons, pecans or walnuts. Your imagination is the limit. šŸ™‚

  1. Our family loves granola. I’m making 4 different types of granola to sell at our farmers market booth this summer, including one type that when I made it, my oldest daughter said, “Mama, this is just TOO GOOD!” So we named it Too Good Granola. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I haven’t toasted my oats before mixing, I will have to try this!

    So good! If you have a nut allergy family member, pumpkin seeds are a great sub for the almonds

    Sounds delish – thanks! I was just thinking I want a good base recipe to play with making some granola. I love snacking on granola (and granola bars) and it seems silly to buy it.

  4. Sounds yummy! When I run out of our 3 bags (I make a huge batch and divide it up and freeze it), I am going to try your recipe! It’s also a go to breakfast in the summer a few mornings a week.

    I’m curious, exactly what kind of oats are you using here? Do the quick cooking varieties work also?
