Honey Nut Granola

Recipe by No MSG
READY IN: 45mins


  • 14
    cup butter
  • 14
    cup honey (preferably raw)
  • 1
    cup coconut (optional)
  • 1
    cup nuts (e.g., pecans, walnuts, almonds, or a mixture)
  • 1
    teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1
    cup dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, etc.)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large oven-proof bowl or pan, melt butter in oven.
  • After butter is melted, add honey and cinnamon and mix well until cinnamon is dissolved into the honey and oil.
  • Add the oats, nuts, and coconut if desired.
  • Mix until the oats and nuts are well coated with honey and butter/oil.
  • Place in the oven for 30 minutes or until oats and nuts are well toasted, stirring frequently.
  • Allow to cool and add dried fruit and store in an airtight container. This stores for at least a month in the pantry and much longer in the refrigerator.
  • I generally triple or quadruple this recipe. Cooking time is considerably longer. Just make sure you stir at least every fifteen minutes.
  • Oil may be substituted for butter. Wheat germ can also be added but tends to make the texture grainy.
