Homemade Granola

59 Reviews

Granola is a breakfast food consisting of various grains (mainly oats) and nuts, served with yogurt or milk. I've been making my own homemade version for a long while now, so that I know exactly what's gone into it rather than getting the store-bought types, which contain preservatives, refined sugars, and too much fat. The result is so delicious that my family and friends are now fully addicted to it and to the aroma that fills the house while preparing it. And last but not least, my granola is more economical than the store-bought products.

Ingredients

vegetable oil spray, for the baking sheet
8 cups rolled oats 800 g
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes 100 g
1 3/4 cup hazelnuts, shelled, coarsely chopped 180 g
1/4 cup canola oil 65 mL
1/4 cup honey 90 g
1/3 cup maple syrup 85 mL

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Lightly oil or butter a large baking sheet (about 30 x 38 cm).
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Pour the oil, honey, and maple syrup into a small bowl, then warm it up about 30 seconds in a microwave oven. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients then toss well. Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 30 to 40 min or until golden brown and crispy. Stir every 10 min to brown evenly and avoid burning the mixture.
  4. Let the granola cool down: It will become crispier and dry as it cools. Make sure to break up any large clumps of granola while the mixture is still warm. Once it has completely cooled, transfer it to an airtight container or plastic bag.

Remarks

The granola will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator; up to 3 months in the freezer.

This is a great basic recipe, good on its own but also fun to add other dried fruit to.

Great recipe for homemade granola! My husband won't touch coconut, even in granola, so I replaced the coconut with 1 1/2 cups of golden raisins and 1 cup dried apples, cut into small pieces. I also added some pumpkin pie spice to get that fall flavor.
