This basic homemade granola recipe is simple and results in a sweet, crunchy, and oh-so-satisfying morning treat! It’s perfect by itself as a quick snack or with milk, mixed with yogurt, or even sprinkled over ice cream!
  • 3 Cups of rolled oats (gluten free if you need to)
  • ¼ – ½ cup of melted coconut oil (less will produce a drier, toastier granola)
  • ¼ - ½ cup of honey or maple syrup
  • ½ cup of raisins
  • ½ cup candied pecans
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup of flaked coconut
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp. of salt
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Spread the mixture over a parchment- or Silpat-lined baking sheet and move into the oven.
  4. Stir the granola every 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Cook to a deep golden brown or until desired doneness, watching closely after 30 minutes to ensure the granola doesn't burn.
  6. Let granola cool, then store in an air-tight container.
