  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oats then cook and stir until starting to brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and spread out on a cookie sheet to cool.
  2. Melt the butter in the same pan over medium heat. Stir in the honey and brown sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly. Return the oats to the pan. Cook and stir for another 5 minutes or so. Pour out onto the cookie sheet and spread to cool.
  3. Once cool, transfer to an airtight container and stir in the almonds and dried cranberries. Any additional nuts and fruit can be stirred in at this time also.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I tried this recipe, but with the suggestions of others. I scaled it down, using 2 c. oats, 1 T honey, 2T brown sugar, and only about 1 T butter. It came out so much better, like actual granola ...

I love this recipe. It is quick and easy, but I gave it four stars, because it would have been less perfect had I not made some changes. As other reviewers suggested I added the rest of the ingr...

This recipe came out great for me. The only change I made was to add the nuts and fruit before taking the oats out of the pan with the sugar and butter mixture and mixing them in then instead of...

Excellent! I followed the advice in a few of the reviews, such as adding more oats, some cinnamon and adding the nuts and fruit at the end of the last cooking phase. I also put the cookie shee...

This tastes a lot better to me than most granolas. My kids really like it, and one of them is really not thrilled with oats generally. It is also easy to make. I added a little bit of vanil...

Great recipe! Definitely worth making it yourself vs eating store-bought. Like others, I have some changes to really make it a 5, and they are: added 1/2 c wheat germ to the oats and nearly do...
