Easy homemade granola with honey, cinnamon, vanilla, oats, walnuts and almonds.


  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 cup sliced almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place the coconut oil in a glass measuring cup or bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments until melted, stirring in between each increment. Stir in the honey, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt until combined.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, walnuts or pecans and almonds. Drizzle the coconut oil/honey mixture over the oat mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the granola mixture onto the baking sheets and spread into an even layer. Be sure the granola mixture is pressed together in one sheet, as this will ensure the granola can be broken into large chunks.
  5. Bake for 1 hour-1 hour 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown and crisp. Let the granola completely cool on the baking sheets, at least 2 hours. Break the granola into large chunks and store in an airtight container or large Ziploc bag up to 3 weeks.


Cooking Tip: Using coconut oil is imperative for this recipe to turn out. If you use an oil that is liquid at room temperature (such as vegetable, olive, canola or avocado oil), the granola will not form clusters.
