Easy Granola

Started making this simple recipe for granola a while ago.  It is perfect for our camping trips.  Easy to store.  Easy solution for a quick breakfast.  Easy to carry while hiking.   Just plain easy.  🙂

Yummy Granola

You can add anything extra to this recipe before baking.  I added about 1/2 to 3/4 cup raisins.  Nuts, craisins (all natural kind), shredded coconut is good too.

  • 1/2 cup cocount oil (all natural, unrefined)
  • 1/2 cup honey (local if you can get it)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cups rolled oats

Melt together the coconut and honey.  Add salt and stir.  Pour over oats and stir well to coat.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until slightly golden.  Stir twice during baking.

You may have to adjust the time for baking.  We found it takes us up to 25 minutes to bake, but the original recipe says to bake 10 minutes.

Yummy with milk, yogurt, or right out of the hand.

3 out of 6 family members will eat this, which means 3 out of 6 family members will go hungry if this is all we have, which means 2 out of 2 parents don’t care.

I will take a small jar with me when I am out doing errands to munch on between meals.  It fills me up and I won’t make that quick trip through a fast food joint.

This is good stuff people!

  1. You’ve conviced me…I will try it :).

  2. Good idea to carry with you while running around…I usually eat trail mix, but will give this a whirl! :O)

  3. stumbled across your sight while trolling pinterest for camping food ideas. You have some fun ideas. Thanks. I am also a mother of 4 and home school. My family is going on a camping edventure this summer. Stop by my blog and check us out.

  4. The Man calls it “Solid Gold Granola” because of all the hours he has to work to earn the money for all the nuts and fruit I like to put in it. LOL

  5. Peanut butter…add that to it (if no allergies) it makes everything wonderful! 😉

    • Matthew has peanut allergies. That’s why we don’t add nuts. I don’t know why we don’t do this, because he wouldn’t touch the granola with a ten-foot pole. I keep hoping. lol

  6. I’ve made granola before, must try again. I like the idea of carrying some in the car while doing errands. DH and I just bought a 5th wheel rv because we are hooked on camping in the Arizona desert in winter!.
