Granola Recipe

On Sunday, I decided to make my dad’s ‘world famous’ granola to have on hand for the week. He has been making and perfecting this recipe since I was in high school. Get ready, because it is kind of addicting. Just like Pringles, once you pop, you can’t stop. ;) I posted a shot of the granola going in the oven on Insta Stories and received a ton of interest for the recipe, so here you go! I should mention, this isn’t your typical über healthy granola made with no grains. It’s the good stuff and totally worth every calorie.



2 cups Steel cut oats 

1 cup Brown Puffed Rice cereal

1/2 cup Corn Flakes

2 tsp Chia Seads

1/2-1 cup Coconut Flakes

1/2 cup Almonds (halved or chopped)

 1 tsp Salt

1 cup Agave Nectar (add more if necessary, also my dad adds in a little local honey too!)

One Fresh Orange Squeezed

1 TBS Cinnamon 


Preheat the oven to 225º. Start by mixing all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Mix in orange juice and agave nectar until mixture is completely coated––I use my hands to mix, but you can definitely use a spatula. Once mixture is ready, pour onto a large backing sheet. Put into the oven for 2 hours. Depending on if you like your granola super crunchy, you may need to put it back in for an additional 30 minutes to an hour.  I suggest letting it cool and then flip and put it back in.  Once cooled, you can break it into small pieces and place it in a large air tight container.  

Throughout the week, I eat it on its own as a snack, on top of smoothie bowls, and Patrick loves it mixed in with yogurt!
