Homemade Granola

Food + DrinkHailey AndresenComment

Yogurt, fruit and granola is one of my favorite breakfast items and snacks. It kills me every time I go out and order it and it costs between $5 and $8 when you could buy pre-made granola or make it yourself at home for so much cheaper. So I decided I would take a swing at making it at home. This isn't the most healthy recipe, hence the two sticks of butter, but it sure is delicious and easy to make, plus it makes your whole home smell incredible. I paired this homemade granola with Brown Cow maple yogurt and blackberries. You can make this healthier by using a substitute for butter and by obviously pairing it with a non-fat plain yogurt or even almond milk, but for this particular instance I decided to give in to my sweet pregnancy cravings. What's new? Hah.


2 cups of rolled oats

1 1/4 cups of mixed raw nuts

2/3 cups of seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

2 sticks of butter

1/2 cup of honey

1 1/2 cups of dried cranberries


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium size sauce pan melt butter and honey over low heat. add in your cinnamon and stir until honey and butter are completely melted. Remove from heat.

In a large mixing bowl combine your oats, nuts, seeds & dried cranberries.

Add your honey & butter mixture to your dry ingredients and mix. 

Spread out on a well oiled baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes. Toss every 10 minutes to prevent burning. remove from oven, let cool, store in a covered container and enjoy!
