Grammie's Granola

Kim Biegacki


Wow, I am excited to find this recipe of my Grammie's because I love granola and what better than homemade granola. I will try and make this for Easter and give it out as gifts in jars. I know my family will love it. Of course, they can munch on it anytime they want and it is a great healthy snack.

I remember my Grandma putting this granola into her homemade yogurt she would make. It really helped my sister & I to be able to eat it easier. It wasn't like the store bought kind with fruit and all. It was sort of sour and tart and other times we could put a spoonful of homemade jam.

How to Make Grammie's Granola


  • 1Pour boiling water over raisins, set aside.
  • 2Combine peanut butter & honey in saucepan and melt. (This takes about 5 minutes or so.) Stir in vanilla, pour over oats and cinnamon.
  • 3Spread over a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 250 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  • 4Stir in raisins, figs and nuts. (I also use other dried fruits like pineapple, papaya, apricots and cherries.)
  • 5Dry in oven about 1 hour, stir occasionally. Store covered. Yields: 8 cups

    (Or whatever fruits you decide. This is a picture of my "Easter Granola" I had dried papaya, pineapple, cherries, figs and salted peanuts)
  • 6To Vary: Use black walnut or other flavors of extracts. Try different nuts and/or sunflower seeds. Add 1/2 cup carob powder to oats or add some wheat germ & bran, increasing the honey too.
  • 7My Easter Jars:
    I added papaya, pineapple and cherries to the mix

    I cut out squares of remnant fabrics to use for the bags on top.
    I bought 1 bag of green plastic grass
    Assorted candies and placed in those 1/2 baggies you can buy at the store.
    Colored thin stripped ribbon and fancy Easter color ribbon thicker.
    Stickers for jars to write Happy Easter on.
  • 8The fabric is up under the lid and then the lid is screwed on to hold fabric in place.
    Here is how I placed the candies on the jar and then tied the fabric up around it.
  • 9Here are my completed jars of Easter Granola and a little chocolate goodies on top.
