Everyday granola full of honey, butter and vanilla flavors. It’s so easy there’s no need to buy it!
You know something is good if you make it every week.
What about every week for years and years?
Although I bake incessantly around here, there are really only two things you will see me making every single week. (If you had a window or something into my kitchen. Which would be weird. So I’ll just tell you.) Bread, either crusty or sandwich, and this granola.
That’s how much we love it. I whip up a double batch, and we eat it cold with milk, or over yogurt, or just by the handfuls. I think almost everyone loves granola, and so this is definitely something I hope you try!
This is so much less expensive than store bought. Your own homemade granola will taste ten times better that any store bought version. If you can get an older kiddo to take over this job for you, all the better! It’s a good beginner cooking “chore”. Although maybe chore is the wrong word, the chef gets to taste test after all 🙂 I am just about ready to have the torch passed from my 13 year old to my 11 year old.
Some tips for this recipe:
If you like lots of clusters, when the granola comes out of the oven press it down gently on the pan and allow it to cool. When cool break it up in crunchy clusters.
If you want to add dried fruit or chocolate chips, wait until the granola is cooled and then mix them in.
Any nuts can be substituted for the almonds.
The coconut and sunflower seeds can be skipped, but they add lots of nutritional value and super flavor for little additional cost.
- 4 Cups Rolled Oats
- ½ Cup Honey
- ½ Cup Butter or Coconut Oil, Melted
- ½ Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
- ½ Cup Chopped Almonds

- Add dry ingredients; oats, salt, cinnamon, almonds, sunflower seeds, and coconut to a bowl. Stir then slowly add in honey, butter and vanilla. Spread out on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through. At 30 minutes, check for light brown color if needed keep baking for 10-15 more minutes.
- For extra crunchy clusters, after the granola is out of the oven press down the granola gently in the pan. Do not stir again. When it is completely cooled, break up into chunks.
