Miscellany :: Granola

Homemade granola is a staple at our house now. It is easy to make and there are endless combinations to try. I like to use this recipe as my base for proportions. I futz with the ingredients every time. I have switched out the spices or the oils. I generally sub in some buckwheat groats for some of the oats. I use mixtures of seeds and nuts. I stir in different combos of dried fruits or sometimes none at all if I want to eat it with preserves. Go! Go make a batch!

Here are the ingredients I generally have on hand to mix and match:

Oats (rolled, thick or regular, not quick)

Buckwheat groats

Chia Seeds

Flax Seeds

Sesame Seeds

Sunflower Seeds

Pumpkin Seeds/Pepitas

Almond slices



Hazelnuts, if I am feeling rich and fancy

Shredded coconut

Dried Cherries

Dried Apple


Golden Raisins


Dried Cranberries

Chopped apricots
