I never though of making my own granola. I wince everytime I buy a box because it is so expensive, but then I saw a fellow blogger mention making her own granola, easily, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.

We bought the bulk ingredients weeks ago and today I finally took the plunge.

I read many recipes, and then decided to settle on the recipe I found on our local honey producer’s website, and I made a few tweaks.

I didn’t use the coconut, or sesame seeds, and I added crushed pecan and walnut bits.

I used my homemade apple sauce I canned a couple years ago.

Here it is out of the oven:

And closer up:

As soon as it cools and dries, I’ll add raisins and dried cranberries.


I mixed in golden raisins and dried cranberries. I froze 3 ziplock bags, but kept some out for breakfast. AND FOR RIGHT NOW!

Best granola I ever had!! Glad I didn’t put coconut in it. Dried cranberries are really good in it.

Easy breakfast!
