Healthy Homemade Granola


It’s no secret that I enjoy bagels and sweets for breakfast – but from time to time I also enjoy granola mixed in with my yogurt! In an effort to eat healthier, I knew I could cut out tons of sugar if I made my own granola.

Making homemade granola is super simple and not very time-consuming. It’s also great because you can tailor the ingredients to what you’re craving – nuts, seeds, fruit, etc!

Healthy Homemade Granola
Yields: Approx. 2 cups

These measurements should serve as a general guide, don’t worry about being exact. If you prefer other nuts or seeds, add or substitute to this mix!

1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup nuts (sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, chopped pecans)
1/4 cup seeds (flax seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of salt


1. Preheat oven to 300º F.

2. Stir together the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.

3. Spread the mixture onto a rimmed baking sheet in a single layer. Place into oven and bake, gently stirring every 15 minutes, until the granola is golden brown, about 40 to 45 minutes.

4. Once granola is done, take out of the oven and let cool. It will harden as it cools.

Serve mixed into (allergy-friendly) yogurt, as cereal with (allergy-friendly) milk, or plain as a snack!
Store in an airtight container.
