Healthy Recipe: Homemade Honey Granola

Friday, 17 July 2015  |  Healthy Food + Recipes


I love oatmeal and anything that has to do with oats. I used to buy granola from Slice High Street (so good!), but, since I’ve committed to cooking more healthy meals at home the past months (you didn’t know that did ya?!), I’ve realized that making granola at home is simple and easy.  Best of all, it’s quick! I made these after dinner.


[ Ingredients ]

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats, raw (I use Old Fashioned Quaker Oats and, no, this isn’t a sponsored post)
  • ½ cup almonds (whole or slivered)
  • ½ cup cashews (whole or roughly chopped)
  • ¼ cup walnuts (whole or roughly chopped)
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup seeds (like sunflower seeds) – optional
  • ¼ cup dried fruit (like dried cranberries, mangoes) – optional
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (I use Laurin Coco MCT and, no, this isn’t sponsored again! I take Laurin daily in my coffee so I’m kinda used to it)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract or almond extract
  • ¼ tsp sea salt

[ Procedure ]

(1) Preheat the oven to 150º C.

(2) In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Use your hands, if you wish.

(3) Pour into a baking sheet.  Bake for 12 minutes making sure to stir once in a while to ensure they cook evenly.

(4) Cool before serving.  You can also store this in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
