A wonderful breakfast treat that’s way better than anything you can buy in a box! Use the baking nuts that aren’t salted or roasted.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup canola oil
  • ⅓ cup hot water
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 6 cups rolled oats
  • ¾ cup sliced almonds
  • ¾ cup chopped pecans
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 ½ cups golden raisins
  • ½ cup dried cherries

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. 2 In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, hot water and honey. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, almonds, pecans, and walnuts. Pour the honey mixture into the oat mixture and stir until the oats and nuts are evenly coated. Spread out the granola onto 2 baking sheets.
  3. 3 Bake for 10 minutes, stir, and bake 10 more minutes, or until toasted. Allow granola to cool completely before stirring in the raisins, golden raisins and dried cherries. Granola will harden as it cools. Break apart any large lumps, and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

  1. Excellent! Why did I eat cereal out of a box for so long? I always add 1 T of vanilla 1 T of cinnamon and 3/4 c sunflower or pumpkin seeds. Then I vary the fruit each time I make it allowing about 1/2 c for each type until I reach the 3 cups total - Read more ...
  2. I was trying to duplicate granola I bought at a Farmer's Market and this is it. Delicious. Easy to make. Perfect breakfast food with a little almond milk added. I used 2 1/4 cups of sliced almonds in place of the walnuts and pecans though I'm sure it's great with all three.
  3. My favorite non-sugar recipe. It's a great base - I change the recipe all the time based on what I have in my cupboards. I like to put pistachios (because the green color makes it so pretty!) and quinoa. I have used pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds and often use dried blueberries. Change up the flavors - Read more ...
  4. I loved this base recipe so I made a few changes to make it my own. I use Olive Oil and I sometimes substitute molasses instead of honey for a really great flavor. I also add 1 tsp. Cinnamon AND 1 tsp. of Cloves or Nutmeg. I also added Vanilla! Ever since I started making - Read more ...
  5. Delicious! I am eating it over vanilla yogurt. Great way to start the day. I halved the recipe. Threw it all together on a cookie sheet covered with foil with a light coating of butter & a sprinkle of brown sugar. I also sprinkled my homemade pumpkin pie spice over it. Thanks!
  6. Thought this was just OK. Mine needed some more flavor and it didn't bind together. But I'm not giving up though. Next time I will add more cinnamon honey and add brown sugar and vanilla. I will also try adding banana like another recipe from this site uses.
  7. This recipe was yummy. I made only half the recipe and substituted some maple syrup for some of the honey for added flavor and used craisins raisins and chopped dates. Delicious!
  8. Wonderful recipe. I have made others from this site and for the sugarless recipes this one is the best. It is sweet with out the sugar and is gone in minutes. My family loves it for breakfast snacks and as an ice cream topper. This is a keeper.
  9. Fabulous recipe! I didn't have dried cherries so I used some extra raisins and broken pieces of sweetened banana chips. I also added some sweetened coconut flakes and a bit of cinnamon. I think 20 minutes total was a bit too long for this recipe - some of the oats were a bit burned. I - Read more ...
