“Spun my own version after browsing dozens of recipes for granola. Am still tweaking the fine details, but the flavor came out fantastic on first try; well worth another go. The recipe is flexible - mix and match ingredients to your heart's content. Happy crunching!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Combine "Dry Ingredients" in a large bowl.
  3. Heat "Syrup Ingredients" in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring, until smooth. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Add syrup mixture to dry granola, about 1/4 - 1/2 cup at a time, mixing granola to coat evenly.
  5. Lightly spray two cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Divide granola-syrup mixture in two and spread each half on a cookie sheet, making sure the granola makes an even layer that reaches all the way to edges.
  6. Bake at 300 degrees for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes to prevent burning. Remove from oven & cool on wire racks.
  7. For a small crumble texture, stir granola periodically while cooling; for clusters, allow to cool completely before gently breaking granola.
  8. When completely cool, mix in any desired fruits and store in an airtight container (or add fruits/other toppings when serving). NOTE: remove any cinnamon stick pieces before serving.
