Simple Granola

Jan 19, 2022

This is my super simple, basic granola recipe. I don't like to add any seeds or dried fruit (because they tend to cook faster than the oats) or nuts (because my spouse has an allergy). I generally sprinkle pumpkin seeds and raisins on top when I eat it but not as part of the recipe.

  • 8 cups whole oats
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • .75 cup honey
  • .5 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix the oats, spices, and salt in a big bowl. Stir in the oil, then the honey and vanilla. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Spread a thin (.5 inch) layer of granola on each sheet. Bake at 350 until golden brown, stirring a few times. It should take about 30 minutes.
