Glo’s Granola

Friends, I’ve been working on perfecting my granola recipe for some time now.

I just hadn’t quite reached that satisfactorily, perfected balance of crispy, soft, crunchy, sweet, nutty granola. Until yesterday. And I tell ya what, I think I hit the nail on the head.

My hope was to come up with something easy enough, that could remain a family staple recipe for years to come.  Optimistically, my {someday} kiddos will like this, because I LOVE baking granola:)

I’m gonna lay it all out for ya. By the way, this is a fairly small batch. Double the recipe to make enough to last for a few days:) It goes quick around here!

  • 1 1/2 cups OATS
  • 1/4 cup FLAX MEAL {heaping}
  • 1/2 tsp CINNAMON
  • 1/2 tsp SALT
  • 1/4 cup + 2 TBSP HONEY
  • 1/4 cup MAPLE SYRUP
  • 1/4 cup COCONUT OIL {melted}

Optional: Add 1/4 cup chopped PECANS and/or 2 TBSP SESAME SEEDS before baking.

Mix the dry’s. Mix the wet’s. Then all together.

Oven at 350. Bake 12 min. STIR. Bake 12 min more.

(depending on size/type of pan, it might need 5-10 more minutes)

After it cools on foil, add 1/4 cup DRIED CRANBERRIES.

Well, there you have it. A new Catarisano family staple:)

  1. I made your granola last night. My brother & sister in law just had a baby and I’m bringing your granola for a yummy, quick breakfast for these sweet, new parents. Thanks for sharing!
