Homemade Granola

"This is my go-to snack. Enjoy!" - Adilah Shahid, Lawrenceville.


3 cups of regular oats

1/2 cup raw pecans, chopped

1/2 cup raw walnuts, chopped

1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup raw almonds, sliced

2 Tbsp. chia seeds

1 Tbsp. flaxseed

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Syrup Ingredients:

6 Tbsp. unsalted butter

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup raw honey

Pinch of salt


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line half-sheet pan with parchment paper. Combine dry ingredients and pour onto parchment lined half-pan sheet. Heat combined dry ingredients for 15-20 minutes, depending on preference, to toast ingredients. Remove from oven and pour into large bowl to cool. While ingredients are cooling, make syrup to pour over the mixture.

In saucepan, mix ingredients for syrup over low to medium heat until sugars and butter have melted. Set aside. Stir in 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Once cooled, pour syrup over oatmeal mixture.

Line 9x9 pan with parchment paper, press mixture flat into pan. Allow to thoroughly cool in refrigerator for 2 hours. Once cooled, granola can be cut in bars or served as mixture.
