Homemade Granola

I remember the first time I realized that granola ain’t exactly a low cal diet food.  SO disappointed!  I mean, it just screams healthy, doesn’t it?  Shouldn’t a girl be able to eat all she wants of the stuff and go on losing pounds & inches? But I got over it. In an incredible feat of denial, I decided granola shouldn’t be a guilty pleasure.  I still categorize it in the “good-for-me” food group.  Hey, better granola than Godiva.

My recipe for Homemade Granola includes flaky light coconut chips and is sweetened with brown sugar, maple syrup (with its rich, earthy flavor) and raisins.  You can swap in an equal measure of craisins or chopped apricots, or pineapple, or any dried fruit of your choice in place of the raisins.

I love my granola in yogurt or ice cream – how do you enjoy yours?

  1. I like to eat it as a snack or like cereal. I started making granola when my children were small. They loved it so much I had to make it once a week.

  2. Hi Jacqueline – what recipe do you make that your kids love? Can you post it?

    Granola is my weakness and I’ve just started making it myself! Any tips about making a special mix for Tu B’Shevat and incorporating the Seven Species? I need to make it for a crowd. I know to use olive oil as the fat, and raisins and dates and figs, but how do I get the barley and wheat in there? Is there something I can replace the oats with?
