This a super simple and cheap granola recipe. Would be good with nuts, coconut or dried fruit.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. In a large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, ground flaxseed, cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, mix corn syrup, oil and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour oil mix into oat mix, make sure oats are evenly coated.
  5. Divide mixture evenly between two jelly roll pans.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. The mixture will seem a little moist, but it will harden up as it cools.
  7. Let cool for 1/2 hour, break apart and store in an airtight container up to 1 week.

This is great, even my five year old loves it. I added pecans, slivered almonds and dried cranberries (stir in the cranberries after it's cooked and still warm or they get really chewy). Delicious!!

This is a great granola recipe. Because I don't always have everything, I revamped it a bit and like it even more. Instead of 1/2 C Corn Syrup, I used 1/4 C of Corn Syrup and 1/4 C Pure Maple Syrup. I also added 1 C chopped almonds. Yum yum! My entire family loves it!
