Homemade Granola

You can use a combination of nuts and seeds and dried fruits. Before, I used Pili nuts, Almonds and Sunflower Seeds. For the dried fruits, I used dried Apricots. You can also use pecans, walnuts and dried cranberries. Use whatever tickles your fancy.


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • ¾ cup dried mangoes (chopped)


  1. Mix rolled oats and nuts in a bowl.
  2. Whisk honey and oil in another bowl until it becomes one thick syrup.
  3. Pour the honey and oil mixture into the oats and nuts mixture and mix well.
  4. Place mixture onto a foil-lined cookie sheet and spread evenly.
  5. Cook in 180°C – 190°C oven for about 30 minutes stirring the mixture every 8-10 minutes.
  6. Once it’s done,place the cooked mixture in a separate cookie sheet to cool then add the dried fruits.
  7. Toss well and put in a dry container.
