How to Make Granola (Also Gluten-Free)

by Hannah Cooper

Healthy and yummy granola filled with seeds, nuts and dried fruit.


  • 2 ½ Cups Rolled oats
  • ¼ Cups Brown sugar
  • ¼ Cups Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • ½ Cups Sunflower/pumpkin seeds
  • 1 Handful Raw Almonds
  • ¼ Teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ Teaspoons Cinnamon
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 300F

    Step 2

    Add vegetable oil, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon and salt into a large bowl. Mix ingredients together. I microwaved the mix to make it a little easier to work with. Microwave for less than 20 seconds

    Step 3

    Add oats, sunflower/pumpkin seeds or whatever seeds you want

    Step 4

    Mix together until the wet ingredients coat the oats

    Step 5

    Spread out evenly on a greased cookie sheet and add raw almonds

    Step 6

    Bake for 35 minutes. Stir every 5-10 minutes so the granola doesn't burn on one side

    Step 7

    When it's done, add dried cranberries or any other dried fruit

    Step 8

    Store in an airtight container

    Step 9

    Step 10

    Use this as a topping for yogurt or have with milk to make cereal

    Step 11

    Here is the recipe from self magazine! I increased the baking time FYI.
