Several readers have requested the recipe for my homemade granola recipe. Recently I had made a few changes so thought I would re-post the recipe. Over the years I have changed the original recipe and I’m not even sure anymore where I had found it. I think it taste so much better than store bought. Everything lined up to use.
6 cups old fashioned Oats
1/3 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup brown sugar – I do not pack it (add more or less depending on how you want)
1/3 cup canola oil – or your choice
1/3 cup honey
1 cup chopped walnuts – or more
1/4 cup almond butter (could use peanut butter or omit if desired)
1 tablespoon vanilla
Put everything in your mixer and thoroughly mix for a couple minutes. I do not add salt but if you wish that is up to you – maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon? I lightly spray a deep baking pan with Pam Spray and spread it evenly.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, stir and put back in the oven for 8 minutes more – stir again – if it is browned to your liking take the mixture out and let it cool completely before storing in an air tight container. This makes about 9 to 10 cups – It gets made every 10 days for sure! I eat it every morning with some frozen raspberries and/or blueberries and almond milk. I usually do not get hungry again until noon or later.

After baking – nice and browned.
