My favourite granola recipe

As the snow starts falling and the winter weather sets in, is there anything better than the smell of warm granola baking in the oven? I'm sharing my favourite, easy-to-make homemade granola recipe. Enjoy! And let me know how yours turns out.

Recipe: Easy-to-make comforting granola

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Notes: Don't worry about having every single ingredient or enough of everything. You can mix and match what nuts and spices you choose to use.


3 cups oats

1 1/2 cups nuts (pecans, hazelnuts, almonds)

1 1/2 cups seeds (pumpkin seeds)

1 tsp salt

2 to 3 tsps spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, cardamom

3/4 cup sweetener (maple syrup, brown sugar, coconut sugar)

1/2 cup oil (liquid coconut oil, olive oil)

Optional: Beaten egg white to replace some oil

1/2 cup chopped dates


1. Preheat oven to 300f/150c.

2. Measure grains, nuts, seeds, salt, and spices into large bowl.

3. Add sweeteners, oil, egg white.

4. Stir.

5. Spread on large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

6. Bake for 30-45 minutes, stirring after about 20 if desired. Keep a nose out. (If you use egg white, the less you stir, the more clusters you will get.)

7. Let cool. After baking, add dried fruit - 1 cup.
