Perfect Winter Granola Recipe

I've been searching for a great granola recipe and I think I have found a winner! My friend at What's Cooking thought this one up and I decided to share it with all of you! Kids can get into the action with this recipe, too.  


  • 4 cups oats (not quick cooking)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbs sesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.If using, add shredded coconut, nuts, sunflower or pumpkin seeds and flax seeds.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine honey, oil and vanilla.

  4. Pour honey mixture over the oat mixture and stir to combine.

  5. Pour the granola mixture onto a rimmed baking sheet and place in the oven.

  6. Bake at 300 degrees for 30-40 minutes, stirring gently every 10 minutes, so that the mixture doesn't burn.

  7. After the mixture comes out of the oven, add any dried fruit of your choice: currants, raisins, or cranberries.

  8. Once the mixture has cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
