About this recipe: Homemade granola is healthier and tastier than shop bought, not to mention less expensive. It's also very easy to make. This is a fantastic recipe that tastes great with milk or with yoghurt and fresh fruit.


Serves: 12 

  • 330g porridge oats
  • 170g wheatgerm
  • 60g chopped walnuts
  • 60g chopped almonds
  • 120g dried cranberries
  • 75ml vegetable oil
  • 425g honey, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:1hr cooling  ›  Ready in:1hr35min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, wheatgerm, walnuts, almonds and dried cranberries. In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Drizzle over the dry ingredients, and stir to coat evenly. Spread the mixture out in a thin layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes to toast evenly. Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Granola will become crunchier as it cools.


Instead of dried cranberries, you can use any other dried fruit - sultanas, raisins, chopped dates, currants, blueberries, etc.

My first effort at home made Granola. This recipe is excellent and produces a very authentic result. Produced a kilo of Granola which was devoured by the family by the following morning. Next time I will be rationing it! Used mixed fruit instead of cranberries. - 14 Feb 2012
