Homemade Granola


I think this granola tastes so much better than store-bought brands. It’s also a lot lower in sugar. If you want to add raisins or other dried fruit, add after the cereal has cooled completely.


  • 4 cups rolled oats (not-quick cooking)
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup whole flaxseeds
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  2. Spread rolled oats evenly on a jelly roll pan and toast in oven for ten minutes, stirring once.
  3. Remove oats from oven transfer to a large mixing bowl with nuts and seeds.
  4. Combine honey and oil and heat over low heat (or place in microwave for a few seconds). Stir in vanilla and salt.
  5. Pour heated honey mixture over toasted oats and toss to coat.
  6. Spread mixture on jelly roll pan and return to oven for ten to fifteen minutes.
  7. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container.

Makes about 6 cups.
