Homemade Granola Recipe

I’m embarrassed to say that I have never made homemade granola before today. For some reason I thought it was just too difficult. Boy was I wrong though, it’s too easy. You just take some rolled oats, and whatever seeds and nuts that sound good from the pantry. That’s it. It’s crazy easy, and will make a healthy snack you can store in airtight containers for several months. For my granola, I added my favorite healthy and nutritious seeds, sunflower and hemp. However, you could add pumpkin and flax if you prefer. Then I added my favorite nuts, pecans and almonds and some coconut. For the fruit, I added raisins, but you can add any type of dried fruit. Just be sure to add the fruit after the granola has cooked.

Homemade Granola Recipe


4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup sliced or slivered almonds
1 cup roughly chopped pecans
1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup hemp seeds
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1  1/2 cups raisins


1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Combine all ingredients, except raisins in a large bowl. Mix well with a spatula, or your hands.

2. Spread granola over 2 large sheet pans and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to get a uniform browning.

3. After granola is done, add raisins and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
