20 Minute Honey Granola - Easy

Total Time
Prep 4 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is a super easy granola recipe. It isn't overly sweet and is a real crowd-pleaser. It also makes your house smell fabulous for hours after you bake it. I normally add about 2 Tbsp. wheat germ and a tsp. brewers yeast to my dry ingredients - for nutritional value.

Love this recipe! Quick, easy, and so delicious. I now make this every Sunday :). I've also sometimes added some cocoa to make it "chocolate granola".

Excellent granola! The directions are perfect and the end result is fabulous. Addictive, even! I'm glad I made the full batch because we have been snacking on this a lot. Thank you for posting! Made for the Spring Pick A Chef event in the contests and events forum.

Awesome....this was the first time ever for me making granola... It was fast and easy. I only had toasted flax seeds on hand and I used 3 tablespoons of them. But otherwise this recipe was a good starting point for me. Thanks so much for sharing this. Making another batch over the weekend!
