The world’s best granola recipe! Our family’s favorite!I have a confession to make. I’m a granola addict. I admit it.
It all started at the girl’s trip with my sisters and mom. My sister Nicole brought a big baggie of her homemade granola. We ate it with yogurt and fruit every morning and I couldn’t. get. enough. It is SO good. It has the perfect amount of sweetness and lots of crunch.
Truth be told, I’d had the recipe written down for a while in my recipe folder but just hadn’t made it yet. After devouring several bowl fulls of the stuff on our trip, I decided I HAD to introduce my family to this amazing granola.
I made it twice in one week and just bought the ingredients to make it a third time! In fact, the last time I made it, my neighbor actually came over to my house and knocked on my door and asked what I was baking because it smelled so good!!! Can you believe that?!?! Yep, people. Be prepared for a serious treat that will make your kitchen smell amaizng!
Nicole is known around her neck of the woods for this granola so consider yourself lucky to be getting her secret classified recipe. 😉
- 6 c. old fashioned oats
- 2 c. raw almonds chopped (I buy them pre-sliced)
- 1 c. coconut
- 1 c. roasted and salted sunflower seeds
- 1 Tbsp. flaxseed or more if you like it!
- 1 Tbsp. wheat germ or more if you like it!
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1 c. honey
- Mix first six ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- Melt your butter and honey in a small bowl in the microwave. Pour over oat mixture and stir.
- Pour on a cookie sheet and spread into an even layer.
- Bake at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes, then stir it and let bake for another 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. (Your kitchen is going to smell SO GOOD!!)

I’ve never made my own granola before….you’ve inspired me to consider it. I have most of those ingredients in the panty. Could I sub agave nectar for honey?
I would love for you to add this recipe to my Weekend Meal Planner linky!

Hi Anonymous!! I changed the recipe to display more correct measurements. Basically the flaxseed and wheat germ is an eyeball amount. If you like it, add more. If not, put less in. Sorry for the confusion!!
Jen @ Yummy. Healthy. Easy.
I love homemade granola, and this sounds very good!
