Best Granola Ever

This is my mom’s granola recipe and it’s the best granola ever (I’m not biased.) It’s so easy to make and is the perfect combo of sweet and crunchy.


  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½  cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ½  cup sliced almonds
  • ¼  cup chopped almonds
  • ¼  cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • ¼  cup sesame seeds
  • 2 TBSP flaxseed meal
  • ½  tsp cinnamon
  • ¼  cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup honey (you may want an extra 1 tablespoon if you like chunkier granola)
  • 1 TBSP vanilla

1.  Mix oats, coconut, almonds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, flax seed meal and cinnamon in a large bowl.
2.  Over medium heat combine oil and honey.  Bring just to a boil, then turn off the heat and add the vanilla.
3.  Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix until dry ingredients are totally covered.
4.  Bake at 300° for about 10 minutes, then stir.  Bake another 10-20 minutes. Watch VERY carefully.  Remove when golden brown.
5.  Cool completely before storing.
