“GO TO” Granola

Karen Korpi


This granola is so good you’ll never want “store bought” again. We use the nut-free version, but you can totally customize it to your taste. If you add chia or flaxseed wait to add them until your last 10 minute bake so the tiny seeds don’t burn. Enjoy!

  • 6 c
    old fashioned rolled oats

    brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp
    kosher salt

    unsalted pumpkin seeds

How to Make “GO TO” Granola


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    Prepare two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
    Mix together the first six ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Melt butter and add cinnamon, vanilla and honey and mix well.
  3. Add butter mixture to dry ingredients and mix, mix, mix.
  4. Spread mixture unto parchment paper evenly. It should be about an inch thick. Bake in 10 minute increments stirring well after each baking. It usually takes three-10 minute sessions. This can vary depending on the type of pan you use, so you have to keep a close eye on it so it doesn’t get too dark. After it’s cooled place in an airtight container. I don’t know how long it can keep because ours has never lasted longer than a week.

It gets its name because it includes foods from regions around the Mediterranean Sea, like Greece, Italy, and Spain. Vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fish, and healthy fats (such as olive […]
