15 Granola Recipes
There’s something so blissfully warming and satisfying about the scent of granola toasting in the oven. Quite possibly because its aroma (no matter what kind you’re making) is reminiscent of fresh-baked cookies. Or, as is the case with some of the recipes below, anything from chai to pecan pie to banana bread and beyond. The options with homemade granola are deliciously limitless!
And while the idea of homemade granola seems to intimidate some, it’s surprisingly easy to make. Plus, the homemade stuff tastes so much better than anything you could ever buy in the store, and is usually much healthier too. You can whip up a batch with simple everyday ingredients, and within 30 minutes or so, it will bake up to crispy perfection, your house will smell amazing, and you’ll have breakfast covered for the next couple of weeks (if you can control yourself, that is). Then just serve it up with fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, or milk. Or you can snack on it with sheer abandon any time of day.
My favorite way to make granola is to, of course, toss it every so often while it’s baking, but then leave it be for about 10 minutes after I take it out of the oven. Then I break it all up with my hands, which is the best way to make sure you get those delectable little clusters, if that’s your thing. (Mixing in an egg white with your granola before baking helps achieve that effect too!) Then I dive in, which I’m sure you’ll want to do with all of these delicious granola recipes below. They are the perfect antidote to liven up your breakfast rut, and are sure to convert any breakfast skippers out there. Happy baking!
