Homemade Granola with almonds, cinnamon, honey and vanilla. This delicious granola is perfect eaten as a cereal with milk, in a yogurt parfait or even used as a crust for a dessert or crisp.
Homemade granola is so delicious and so much healthier than anything you can buy in the store. This recipe is super easy to make. It makes a large batch, and you can add just your favorite ingredients.
This recipe also has shredded coconut and flax seeds, but they just disappear and add a bit of taste and a ton of extra nutrients. You could add pecans, walnuts, dried cherries, dried apricots, raisins. The sky’s the limit!
Granola is so versatile. I love to eat it for breakfast sprinkled over a bowl of yogurt with fresh raspberries or blueberries. During the school year I take a small container and eat it with yogurt for a quick snack. You could just add milk for a bowl of cereal.
Don’t forget to PIN for later!

- Divide in two parts. Spread each part onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly over baking sheet.
