How to Easily Make Granola

Granola is a combination of oats, seeds, nuts, and dried fruit. It’s usually eaten for breakfast together with milk or yogurt, or even during the day as a snack. It’s a very nutritious meal due to its high content of fiber and healthy fats.

Ingredients

To make 8 to 10 portions, you’ll need:

  • 1½ cups of whole-grain or old-fashioned rolled oats

  • ½ cup of walnuts or unsalted peanuts

  • ½ cup of pumpkin or sunflower seeds

  • ½ cup of almonds

  • ½ cup of dried cranberries

  • 1 tbsp of vanilla essence

  • 2 tbsp of coconut, olive oil, or almond oil

  • 4 tbsp of honey

Step 1

  • Put the oats, almonds, walnuts, and seeds in a bowl. Add coconut oil or olive oil.

  • Stir thoroughly with a spoon. Then incorporate the honey and vanilla essence. Mix everything with your hands until all the ingredients are properly integrated.

Step 2

  • Line an oven tray with a baking sheet and spread the mixture into a flat layer to ensure even cooking.

Step 3

  • Place the tray in the middle of the oven. Bake the mixture for 25 to 30 minutes at a temperature ranging from 350°F to 390°F until it gets brown. Stir a couple of times while baking.

  • The temperature and time depend on the type of oven you have. You should constantly check the mixture so as not to burn it.

Step 4

  • Let it cool off and keep it in an airtight container or a glass container with a lid.

  • Add the cranberries or any dried fruit you desire.

  • Keep the granola in a cool and dry place. It should be consumed within the next 7 to 10 days.
