20 Minute Honey Granola - Easy

Total Time

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.

This recipe was so easy. I made it with my 2 year old, who got to help measure the ingredients and mix it together. It took 20 minutes start to finish as I cooked it on convection for only 15 minutes. I cooled some in the fridge for her to eat right away for breakfast and she said 'yum'. I did find the honey and coconut oil needed to melt first so I put them in the microwave for 30 seconds. Also it was definitely too sweet even though I cut the honey down to 1/4 cup. Next time I will use half the amount of honey. That's a personal preference though. Some people like sweeter granola. I will definitely use this recipe again.
