Recipe: Basic granola (healthy and easy)

Making granola has always been on my baking list (well, not entirely baking, but you get what I mean). But as always, laziness had me. :P 

Today after much procrastination, I finally made my own healthy granola! 

I even blog about it immediately man! Nowadays, my speed is turtle when come to blogging. Hahaha! 

2 cups rolled oats
1 cup mixed nuts (almond, cashew, pistachio and walnut)
1 cup mixed seeds (melon, sunflower, pumpkin, flaxseed)
1/4 cup raisin 
4 Tbsp Honey*
2 Tbsp oil**

1. Preheat oven to 150 degree Celsius. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well to ensure that everything is well coated. 

2. Spread the mixture in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes (stir and mix after 15min). 

3. Let the granola cool before storing in an air tight container. 

*you may replace with any other sweetener of your choice. Eg. gula melaka, sugar
**any oil is workable for this recipe! I use canolo oil for mine. :)

I always know that granola is very easy to make, but I have no idea it is so simple! The smell was really amazing when the granola was out and it tasted just as good! Couldn't stop snacking on my freshly baked granola the moment it was out of the oven! Heh. :P 

Anyway, this granola recipe  is a really flexible one. As in, you can just add whatever you like to roast with the rolled oats. Just like I did! I simply took out whatever I had in my fridge! :D Will definitely try this again with other ingredients. ^^

Well, other than eating the granola like a snack, it is good to go with a some yogurt/milk too! Or even in baking! Will share with everyone a cake recipe with granola the next time~ 

Till then! ^^

ps: becareful not to overbake your granola, therefore always keep the oven temperature low. :)



  1. Hi,
    Thanks for sharing this easy recipe.
    Just wonder if this can be keep for one month cause my daughter is keen to make this for her school project.

    1. Hi Helen,

      you're most welcome. :)

      I have not tried keeping the granola for so long. But I don't recommend you to do that as there is not perservative added. The longest I have tried storing this was up to 2 weeks in air tight jar in the fridge. :)

  2. Huh ? Do you have any good and easy recipes to recommend then? Really needs help.
