My BEST Granola Recipe!


  • 5 ½ cup rolled oats (use quick oats for lighter, crispier granola)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup honey or maple syrup (I use honey)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups nuts and dried fruit mix of your choice

Ingredients and Kitchen Tools I Use


  1. Preheat oven to 325 F (165 C). Line 2 baking pans with parchment paper.
  2. Place oats in a large mixing bowl.
  3. To a small pot, add oil, honey, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Bring to boil over medium heat, just until the sugar is dissolved.
  4. Pour the honey mixture over oats and stir to coat well.
  5. Spread evenly onto baking sheets, keep the center of the baking pan empty to make for more even baking.
  6. Bake for 10 mins, then take the pans out to stir the granola, then bake for another 10.
  7. The oats should be a little darker in colour when done, you may need to bake for a few more minutes if it's not quite browned yet. Once cooled, it should be crispy.
  8. Stir in trail mix when cooled.
  9. Store in airtight container. If you made a lot, consider keeping some in the fridge to prevent the nuts from going rancid. Enjoy!
