I love yogurt, granola and fresh fruit – as breakfast, snack or anytime. Being frustrated with the high fat (and who knows what ingredients) in store-bought granolas, I blended elements of several recipes and came up with this fast, easy and most importantly, delicious homemmade granola. Enjoy!

  • Yields: about 4-5 cups of granola
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Total: 20 minutes
  • Active: 5 minutes

Ingredients (11)

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 3/4 cups sliced almonds
  • 1/2-1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3-1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup milled/ground flax seed
  • 1 cup mixed dried fruit (I highly suggest dried cherries and dried mango)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 7 tbsp honey
  • 3 tsp brown (or demara) sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 325C.
  2. Mix dry ingredients. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt honey, butter, brown sugar over low heat.
  4. When melted, toss with dry ingredients.
  5. Lay out on baking pan; bake for 15 minutes (or a bit longer if you like it drier and crunchier)
  6. Let cool. As it cools, mix in chopped dried fruit.
  7. Stores for 2 weeks in airtight container.
