We have been making granola at the inn since we started many years ago. It’s a nice healthy option to have when guests are eating extra healthy or do not like our entree of the day. When we first started I tested many recipes but landed on this one as it has a little bit of added sweetener with brown sugar and honey to makes it a treat as well as all the natural ingredients of oats and nuts to makes it healthy.

Home made granola recipe
Recipe type: Cereal
Serves: 6 cups
Byron loves this recipe as it always comes out crunchy.
  • 4 cups Old Fashion Oats
  • ¾ cup sliced almonds
  • ¾ cup whole pecans
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups craisons (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl mix together the oats, nuts, sugar, cinnamon and salt. In a small saucepan heat the oil and honey together, stirring to mix well. Turn off heat and add vanilla. Pour over the granola and mix well with a wooden spoon. Spread mixture onto two cookie sheets lightly sprayed with Cooking Spray. Reduce oven to 300. Bake for 15 minutes and then take out of the oven to stir thoroughly. Repeat this process 4 times. Turn off the oven and remove cookie sheets. Place the sheets back in the oven when the temperature reaches approximately 250. Leave for 2 -3 hours with the door ajar. When the granola is totally cool place in an airtight container.

  1. This is almost exactly the recipe I use for granola, given to me by a friend. The only difference is I bake it at 300 degrees for 10 minutes, stir and repeat so it bakes for a total of 30 minutes.

    But your breakfasts are so good . . . Who wants to “waste” the meal on granola!

    • Hi Marcia, the original recipe was for 10 minutes but we have found we like it extra crispy and bake it a little longer:) Best to you my knitting friend.
