Who doesn’t like granola? {If you don’t, you probably aren’t reading this post :) } Chewy or crunchy, it’s perfect on yogurt, applesauce, as cereal or just by the handful. 

Make this easy homemade granola recipe for breakfast--kids can help too!

Easy Homemade Granola

3 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 cups add ins, like nuts, raisins, chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Whisk together the oil, honey, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Pour over oats and mix well (with the help of your children of course!)

Spread mixture evenly on baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown, stirring well every 5 minutes. 

Allow granola to cool completely, then transfer to a large bowl and stir in add-ins. Can be stored un-refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. We keep ours in a pretty quart jar!

*Fill half-pint canning jars with yogurt or applesauce and sprinkle granola on the top for an on-the-go breakfast!

  1. That sounds yummy! I never thought of putting it on applesauce–I’ll definitely give that a try. Would give the applesauce a little more sticking-power for a snack :)

    • It’s super yummy! My family loves to layer applesauce and granola and then top with fresh whipped cream (and chocolate chips!) for a yummy summer breakfast/dessert. It’s very similar to a traditional Scandinavian dessert called Eppli Cakka. :)

  2. I just started picking up some granola at the store to munch on in the afternoon. It is a good snack that ties me over until dinner. I like the idea of a homemade version much better! Thanks for posting.
