“My husband found this recipe in a mountain bike magazine that we changed just a bit. This granola is really easy to make and very good. You can use oats, but I like to use multi-grain hot cereal that includes oats, barley, rye, and wheat. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees.
  2. Toast nuts in pan over stove until lightly brown.
  3. Mix the fruit juice, honey, maple syrup, oil, vanilla, and spices in a large bowl. It's okay to add more honey, maple syrup, cinnamon, or spices - just depends how you like your granola to taste.
  4. Add oats and nuts into honey mixture and combine together.
  5. Spread mixture on a baking sheet and bake 30 minutes until golden. Stir occasionally. Use your best judgement when baking. I like mine a little crunchy, so sometimes I bake it 40 minutes.
  6. Leave on pan to cool.
  7. If you are using dried fruit stir in once completely cooled.
  8. Store granola in container with lid (not in refrigerator). It will last about a week or a little longer. Add granola to vanilla yogurt, or with milk, or eat plain.
