tonight I made homemade granola. i am always amazed when i come across a recipe and i actually have all the ingredients on hand. so with no trip to the store stopping me, i proceeded to make it. it was so simple and is oh so delicious. and so much cheaper than buying it, might i add! here is the recipe i followed out of Real Simple magazine:


  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (preferably unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup EVOO
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup dried fruit (such as cherries, cranberries, raisins, or currants)
  • *I also add 1 cup flax seed


Heat oven to 350° F. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the oats, almonds, coconut, and seeds with the maple syrup, oil, and salt. Bake, tossing once, until golden and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. Add the dried fruit and toss to combine. Let cool.
