Quick and Simple Granola

I love this granola recipe that my mom shared with me years ago. It is so easy to whip up a batch (or double batch) in no time. I make it pretty simple and that allows my boys (all with different tastes) to add in what they like – yogurt, raisins, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, dried banana chips, etc. (you get the picture). What I love most is that this recipe uses ingredients that I usually have in my pantry.


  • 5 cups oats (quick or rolled)
  • ¾ cup honey
  • ½ cup Wheat Germ
  • ½ Avocado oil (you can also use coconut oil or vegetable oil)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (I like them toasted)
  • 1 cup Pecans or Walnuts, chopped


Preheat your oven to 300º. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour the granola mix into a large baking pan or cookie sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool on a rack. Place in a container and enjoy!
