How to Bake Granola at Home

How to Make Granola at Home - http://CookingWithKimberly.comMy snacking habits have been a little lax as of late…

I have been extremely busy and tend to grab things to snack on only because they are easy and readily available.

In other words, if it’s not sitting in front of me at home, I’ll grab something on the go that’s probably not so healthy like chips, a chocolate bar, whatever is available.

So, I’ve decided to try and plan ahead by making some healthy, nutritious, and more inexpensive granola, as opposed to running out for a quick, unhealthy treat.

Enjoy by itself or topping your favorite treats or as good, old fashioned cereal with milk.

Be creative by experimenting with different nuts, seeds, dried fruits and spices that you may like. You may even try using different sweeteners like agave nectar.

Type: Snack Recipe
Serve With: served as cereal with milk, on yogurt, on ice cream, on salads, by itself
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 1 hr 15 mins
Yield: 8 servings

The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy the video below.


  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds – crushed
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 3/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/4 cup dried dates – chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried mango – chopped
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tbsp bee pollen – optional
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Combine oats, nuts, seeds, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate small mixing bowl, combine maple syrup, honey, oil and salt.
  4. Combine both mixtures in large mixing bowl ensuring to evenly distribute these ingredients. * Tip: Make sure mixture is just moist, not too wet. If mixture is too dry, add more liquid like maple syrup or honey. If mixture is too wet, add more oats, nuts and/or seeds.
  5. Divide mixture in half on 2 non-stick cookie sheets.
  6. Bake in oven for 1 hr, 15 mins, being sure to stir, move and turn granola every 15 minutes to evenly bake and get a golden brown color.
  7. Remove cookie sheets from oven and transfer, once cool, into a large mixing bowl.
  8. Add raisins, dates, goji berries & mango and stir to mix until everything is evenly distributed.
  9. Store in mason jars or well sealed Tupperware containers.

Enjoy this snack all on its own at home or on the go, as a cereal topped with milk, top your yogurt or ice cream with this granola, or even a salad in place of croutons to give a little bit of crunch and flavor.
