Homemade granola

Granola is great for a quick, hearty breakfast and it is super easy to make. The basic recipe that follows came from my wife’s mom. I often modify it with different oils or flavorings.


4 cups Organic rolled oats

1/3 Cup organic oil (I like to use raw organic coconut oil the most)

1 cup nuts or seeds

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/3 cup Organic maple syrup

Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl thoroughly and then put in a baking pan.

Place pan in a preheated 250 degree oven for 45 minutes. Remove stir and replace into oven for 45 minutes.


Once the granola cools I often add raisins or other dried berries.  Shredded coconut is also a good addition.

To ensure complete avoidance of genetically modified ingredients only use organic ingredients.


Mix it well.


I like using the glass pyrex dish to bake it in.
