Homemade Granola

December 26, 2020 | By Jeremy Scheck | 3 Comments

Homemade granola is super easy to make, and it’s cheaper than store bought. This recipe happens to be vegan (if you use maple syrup) and gluten-free (if you are gluten-intolerant make sure that your oats aren’t cross contaminated).

Feel free to switch up the spices, types of nuts and seasonings.

If you like it more clumpy, don’t spread it out as much.

Homemade Granola


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 large handfuls nuts of your choice
  • 1 big scoop of seeds such as chia, flax, or sunflower
  • Seasonings such as cinnamon, salt, cloves
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil or avocado oil
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • Handful of dried fruit (if desired), I like dry blueberries


  1. Combine everything together, bake at 300° F on a lined sheet pan for about 1 hour (or until crunchy and deeply golden-brown). I stir it every 15 mins or so. ⠀
  2. After letting it cool, add dried fruit (if desired!). I used dried blueberries.

  1. I made this granola quite a few times and I love it! It’s seriously so easy to make. I think my oven runs a little hot because I always have to pull it out before an hour or else the nuts burn. I just love how versatile this recipe is. You can put just about anything in it.

  2. You are simply amazing and I haven’t stopped telling every friend I talk to (which are many because it’s New Years day) about you!! I already made the crispy roast potatoes as part of my New Year’s Eve dinner. My husband and I love them. Next I will try the spicy rigatoni with vodka sauce! Of course, the granola, red velvet cake and the granola will follow soon after. I have been cooking for years and with COVID, I make more meals than ever before. You deserve every success. Keep up the great work!!
