This granola is the perfect sweet and chewy blend and is so simple to put together with just 5 simple ingredients, plus optional add-ins for extra flavor and health benefits.

I don’t know about your home, but in mine, children are always hungry and looking for a snack. Granola is one of my favorite, cheap, healthy foods to have on hand for quick breakfasts or easy snacks and it is one of those foods that once you have made at home you will never want to buy in the store again.

Granola is perfect on top of yogurt, as cereal with a splash of milk, or on its own for breakfast or a snack.

Chewy Granola

Perfectly sweet, chewy granola. The only recipe you will ever need.
Course Breakfast


  • 6-7 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2-3 cups add-ins (see notes)
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • In a large bowl combine oats and add-ins.
  • In a small sauce mix honey and coconut oil and heat on medium-low heat just until mixture begins to simmer. Remove from heat and add cinnamon and salt.
  • Pour oil/honey mixture over oats and stir until the oats are well-coated.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9×13 baking sheet and set aside.
  • Dump oat mixture onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, until oats are just beginning to turn brown. Do not stir.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely before moving from pan. This will help it clump together.


There are so many options for add-ins to this granola. Some of our favorites are sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds, coconut, flax seed, cranberries, and pecans. 
Adjust your oat ratio depending on how much extra “stuff” you want in your granola. There should be a total of 8 cups of dry ingredients.
