Nothing tastes better in the morning, or mid-afternoon, or even a late night snack than a hearty bowl of homemade granola!  For some of the ingredients I’m a bit spoiled because my father-in-law brings me the BEST local, raw honey from Montana when he comes out for a visit and it’s TASTY!  I make all sorts of different versions of granola based off what ingredients I have in my pantry at the time, but here is my basic go-to recipe:

Katrina’s Homemade Granola

  • 2 cartons of any type of oats – 180z each
  • 1 cup of peanuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 coconut
  • 1/3 cup chia seed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup local, raw honey
  • 2 cups natural peanut butter

Combine all the dry ingredients and stir with a big spoon in a large bowl.  Mix the wet ingredients in a different bowl and Igranola3 like to heat it up in the microwave for 30 seconds, it helps them mix up better.  Then stir the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients.  I like to use my hands to mix it up well!  Then pour into 2-4 bar pans and bake for 30 mins at 375 degrees.  Make sure to stir your granola after it has cooked for 15mins.  Once baked, let sit out until it completely cools.  I then put my granola in a big cereal tupperware bin I have.  This makes a decent amount of granola – but for my family of 5, it usually lasts about 2 weeks at the most!  Makes for a great breakfast meal or for a snack!

You could also subsititute the honey with apple juice, or even orange juice – but it won’t come out as sweet.  I’ve added chocolate chips by the handful (after it’s cooked of course) for a sweet treat late at night, and I’ve also used different types of nuts like cashew, walnuts, etc.  You can leave out the coconut, but I love how it tastes.  I like to use the big shreds of it that I found at Sprouts (which has not added sugar).

Enjoy!
