Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola

19 Comments

Easy and Quick Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola Hip2Save.com

Making homemade granola can cut down on your grocery bill and also happens to be super easy! Plus, I love that you can control the amount of sugar added and can customize to your liking by adding in your favorite nuts, seeds and dried fruits. In addition to making a great cereal, granola can be added to yogurt and fresh fruit for a breakfast parfait and makes a great snack all on its own!

Homemade Vanilla Almond Granola

Adapted from Chow.com

Ingredients:

3 cups Rolled Oats
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/2 cup sliced Almonds
Amazing Vanilla Almond Granola Made with Coconut Oil Hip2Save.com
Directions: Mix oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. Pour the liquid mixture over the oats mixture and mix until evenly coated. In a thin and even layer, spread out over a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat or a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper. You may need to separate into two baking sheets to ensure oats toast evenly and get that crunchy texture. Bake at 325 degrees for about 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Take out of oven, toss with nuts and/or dried fruit, and let cool. Texture will become crunchy as it cools. Store in airtight container.

    This looks so good. I can’t wait to go to the store to get the ingredients.

  2. Little Mama

    Lina, can I use whole almonds? I have a gigantic bag of them.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure it would be easy to maybe run them through a food processor or chopper just so it’s easier to eat maybe?

  3. Denise P.

    For the coconut oil.. is it 1/4 cup measured (cooled) or melted?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Melted or very soft so it combines easily with honey. Thanks

  4. Vanessa

    I have all of these ingredients! *super excited to try this recipe, thank you.

  5. mom

    breakfast parfait….we make them for dinner. The kids love to pile on the fruit and granola into large glasses. it is a perfect no cook, no oven dinner!

  6. Courtney

    Looks so yummy! Linda, how long can you store this for?

    • courtney

      Oops I meant Lina 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Up to a couple weeks in an airtight container – thanks!

      • Jane

        It won’t last that long! lol

      • Lori G

        Freezing granola keeps it crunchy and fresh indefinitely 🙂

  7. Susie

    Thanks. My family and I are in to CLEAN eating and have been wondering how to do this without sugar or much sweeteners. My pantry is looking amazing, like a health food store and I have lost over 30 lbs the last 7 months with the help of medicine and a clean diet where I also keep in mind the portions and calories =)

    As soon as I saw this, I got up and made it! It took no time at all and was so delicious! I didn’t have rolled oats so I used quick oats and it worked just fine. I also subbed unsweetened shredded coconut for the almonds because I didn’t have any. I can see adding cocoa powder and making chocolate granola! Thanks so much for this quick and adaptable recipe! I will never need to buy cereal again!

    My husband is allergic to coconut oil. Is there something I can substitute the coconut oil with? Thanks!

    • betsy

      I use butter when I make granola.

  12. Melissa

    Just making this and yummo! Thanks! I used canola oil because I was out of coconut
