Homemade Honey Nut Granola Recipe


  • Yield: about 5 cups of granola 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup of honey
  • 2 cups of desired nuts, seeds, etc. (I used a mix of peanuts, cashews, whole almonds, and sunflower seeds)

Optional Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup of dehydrated coconut chunks OR unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup of raisins

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325°F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine nuts, seeds, brown sugar and rolled oats. Add the coconut to this now if you plan on using it.
  4. Sprinkle the mixture with vanilla.
  5. Pour the honey into the mixing bowl and combine until everything is coated.
  6. Tip You might fin it easier to stir the honey with a silicone spatula coated with vegetable oil.
  7. Spread the mixture out evenly on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes. IMPORTANT Make sure that you break up the granola and stir it around half way through baking so that it evenly bakes.
  9. Once ready to come out of the oven, lay the baking sheet on top of a cooking rack to allow it to cool faster. Give it another stir and allow to cool to room temperature.
  10. The granola should harden a bit more as it cools.
  11. If you are adding raisins and the chocolate chips, you can combine them with the granola now.
  12. Pour the granola into a large container for storage. It should keep for 2-3 weeks.
