Granola (Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Wheat-Free)


Janelle, Brown Bag Blues – I always had thoughts of making granola, but the recipes I found seemed too complicated. Then my mother-in-law put a recipe in front of me that was easy to make. So I tried it: and loved it. The flavor is spot-on and the recipe simple and unassuming. It is a granola my children would be willing to try, in part because it is not overdone or filled with too many unknowns.



  • 4 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • optional: raisins, dried cranberries/cherries/blueberries/apple

Oven to 300 degrees. In large bowl mix first five ingredients. In a small bowl, blend honey, oil and vanilla. Pour over dry ingredients and stir to blend. Spread in big pan and place in oven for 40 minutes. Stir occasionally. Keeps for a week sealed at room temp, or frozen up to 3 months.
