Ina's Homemade Granola

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Irish Rose

This is Ina Garten's recipe (The Barefoot Contessa) and I think it is delicious. However, I have never made any of her recipes that I didn't think was delicious. I love this over yogurt.

Wonderful granola! This makes a whole lot of granola! Be sure to watch your oven, my granola was done about 10 minutes before time indicated. I replaced the figs with chopped dates and also added in 1 cup of dried blueberries to the mix. This will be great for snacking, or as a topping for yogurt and fresh fruit! Thank you for sharing, Irish Rose! : )

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Toss, oats, coconut and almonds together in large bowl and set aside.
  3. Whisk together the oil and honey in small bowl and pour over the oat mixture and stir with wooden spoon until all the oats, coconut and nuts are coated.
  4. Pour into a 13x9 baking pan and bake. Stir occasionally with spatula until mixture turns a nice golden brown about 45 minutes.
  5. Remove granola from oven and allow to cool, stirring occasionally. Add the apricots, figs, cranberries and cashews. You can put whatever mix of dried fruit in that you please. I have even started to put in a cup of dark chocolate chips after the oats mix has cooled.
