Homemade Granola Recipe

Freshly baked homemade granola

Although I know that oats are good for our body, I just can’t stand the usual oatmeal’s mushy texture. So I used to just make oat cookies out of them (I still do)! However, I figured that making granola serves the same purpose of taking away that unpleasant (for me) texture, so I gave that a go too. Aside from getting me to eat more oats, it’s also pretty easy to prepare.


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup nuts or seeds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey (Personally, I do 1 part honey, 2 parts maple syrup)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup dried fruit
  • Optional: ¼ cup toppings of your choice (i.e. chocolate chips, coconut threads or flakes)


  1. Pre-heat the oven at 175 ℃. 
  2. Combine the oats, nuts/seeds, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Pour in the oil, maple syrup/honey, and vanilla. Mix well.
  4. Spread the granola in a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Mix the granola half-way.
  6. Let the granola cool down completely for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Mix in the dried fruit and the toppings that you have.
  8. Store in an airtight container.

Enjoy! 💜
