Homemade Granola Without Nuts

Granola is so expensive in the store and with two kids with tree nut allergies it is always a concern finding granola without traces of tree nuts. This is a tasty and easy granola recipe. I have added honey or cinnamon to mine. The recipe is very flexible depending on your preference.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place brown sugar and water in a large microwavable bowl and dissolve the sugar in the water for 2-3 minutes (I stir after each minute to check on the progress).
  2. Add the oatmeal and mix until well coated. Add honey or cinnamon or any other ingrediens you desire. Mix well.
  3. Line a couple cookie sheets with parchment paper. (Cookie sheets wih sides will make it easier to stir.) Place the oatmeal mixture in a thin layer onto sheets.
  4. Bake at 275 for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. Let cool and place into air tight container. Will keep for about 2 weeks.

Great inexpensive simple granola recipe. Cost me $.88 to make this before add ins. This will be a regular for me from now on.

I use brown rice syrup, or maple syrup or barley malt syrup. Any dried chopped fruits ramp up the flavor.
