If you've never made your own granola, you'll be amazed at the difference in freshness and flavor—and at how easy it is. Use this recipe as a starting point for your own creativity: substitute dried blueberries or chopped dried apricots for the cranberries, or walnuts or hazelnuts for the almonds.

Everybody Wants the Recipe

I love this very tasty granola. The only changes I've made are to omit the cinnamon and the cranberries. I just really dislike the taste of cinnamon on my cereal, and I'm afraid the granola will absorb moisture from the cranberries making it soft and the cranberries hard, so I put them (or other dried or fresh fruit) on when I eat it. I've gotten boxed cereal with dried fruit that's hard enough to break a tooth.

Everyone who's had this granola at my house asks for the recipe.

Easy to make, very tasty, inexpensive compared to store-bought.

Perfect gift from the kitchen

This crunchy granola is fantastic and easy to customize. I used dried cherries, coarsley chopped instead of the cranberries.

Easty, delicious and healthy

Add ground flax seed, for sure! The taste and texture are a wonderful addition to homemade granola, pancakes, hot and cold cereals, and muffins.
