About 4 3/4 cups (serving size: about 1/2 cup)

Keep this nutrient-packed homemade granola on hand for a quick-fix breakfast or for snacking. Munch on it dry, add milk, or stir it into yogurt. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300°.

Step 2

Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl.

Step 3

Combine orange juice, honey, and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat just until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in oil and vanilla.

Step 4

Pour honey mixture over oat mixture, stirring to coat. Spread mixture in a thin layer onto a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 300° for 10 minutes; stir well. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Spoon granola into a bowl; stir in dried cranberries. Cool completely.

Step 5

Note: Store completely cooled granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.

I will never buy granola again. My family loves this recipe and so do I. It tastes great with yogurt, with milk or by itself. I have made different variations like making it with dried mango and coconut. But just amazing.

This granola is so easy and absolutely delicious! I read other reviews and baked it at 315 for a total of 30 mins. I used almond extract and dried cranberries in the first batch and vanilla extract and dried blueberries in the second batch. Not sure I'll ever buy granola again...

Just made this tonight and it tastes great! I used a different combination of nuts/seeds based on what was on hand, but kept the spices and sweetners (although I did only add 2 Tb of brown sugar). A winner in my book!

This is AMAZING granola- I have used fresh oj, and sometimes add a little coconut. I never have flax seed on hand but I'll have to try it next time. LOVE IT
