A Yummy Granola Recipe

I have been on the lookout recently for a good granola recipe. I find that granola is a healthy and satisfying snack for me but it’s relatively expensive in the store. Finally I found one that, with a few minor tweaks, suits my taste and just might suit yours too so I’m sharing it here.


Ann's Yummy Granola
  • 6 cups raw oats
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup dried raisins
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl combine oats, almonds, brown sugar. In a smaller bowl whisk together the vegetable oil, honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Micro-cook about a minute. Pour over the oat mixture and toss to coat oats. Spread evenly on a large (15”x10”) baking dish. Bake at 300 degrees about 30 minutes, stirring twice during that time to evenly brown the oats.
  2. Remove from oven and allow to come to room temperatures before combining the oat mixture with the raisins and cranberries. Mix well with your hands to loosen the raisins and cranberries. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 8 cups (2 lbs.) of granola.
