Easy, Healthier, Homemade Granola Recipe

My mom and I are huge fans of some darn good homemade granola. It’s a healthier alternative to any store bought granola and whipping it up yourself allows you to control how much oil, sugar, and any other ingredient that may be unnecessary, to be smuggled in your granola. Easy, Healthier and Quicker opportunity for you to munch on as a snack or the perfect topping for your Greek yogurt. It’ll give you plenty of fiber, iron, and protein needed to start off your day the right way. Which is energized! 😉 Hope you enjoy this recipe, it’s an old favorite:

Dry Ingredients –

  • 6 Cups of oats (100% Natural Oats or Organic preferred)
  • 5oz can of cashews (You can do less if desired…Or more)
  • 1 Cup of Pecans

Keep In mind you can change up the ingredients as you wish to suit what you enjoy best.

Wet Ingredients –

  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 1/3 cup of hot water
  • 2tsp of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of raisins (golden preferred)

Cooking Details Below 🙂

A 14×10 inch pan will help you immensely
Mmmm…Perfect Kick Starter
Change up dried fruit or nut choice to satisfy your taste or flavor
  1. Preheat your oven at 325°
  2. Add dry ingredients into your rimmed, ungreased pan and mix well

  5. Pop that sucker in the oven, and take care of it like a baby, mix it around every 5 minutes for 35 minutes to avoid burning and for a nice even crisp granola

    1. It does not stick together unfortunately but you can always add some more honey for a stickier effect! It has a sprinkle consistency! Perfect topping for yogurt or oatmeal! 🙂 My boyfriend eats it from the bag as a snack, almost like a trail mix 😉
