Graham Granola



I guess you could say we get stuck in a rut.

For years we ate peanut butter granola. Then it was soaked granola. I didn't even look for another recipe. We liked our granola recipe so well. But recently I was looking for a change and tried this Graham Granola. It was love at first taste.

This granola has the flavor of a graham cracker and our children love it. Ed is known to pull this out for a bowl before bed. With warmer weather coming (We hope! Last night we had a frost that blackened the leaves of the potatoes.) we will turn more often to simple breakfast of yogurt, granola, and fresh fruit.

Graham Granola

6 cups quick oatmeal
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup coconut
1 1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup honey
1 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil

Mix dry ingredients together. Melt butter and honey together in saucepan. Pour over dry ingredients and stir well. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes at 300 degrees. Stir every 15 minutes.

I double this recipe, place it on two jelly roll pans and put both in the oven at the same time. Halfway through, I rotate the pans from the top to the bottom rack.

    1. It keep for several weeks in an air tight container. I prefer to store it in the freezer so it stays super fresh. I actually like to eat it straight out of the freezer. When I add the milk, it thaws but makes the milk super cold.

  6. Gina, did you use unsalted or salted butter? Generally in your recipes when it calls for butter, do you use salted?
    Loving your blog! Karen

      I typically use salted butter unless I specifically list unsalted butter.

  7. Hi Gina, I've just discovered your blog this week as I was searching for a recipe, and I've really enjoyed reading through the archives and trying new recipes! Just wondering if you think I could substitute the coconut with walnut pieces or slivered almonds without compromising the taste in the granola? Thanks!

      I think nuts would be a great addition to the granola!

    2. I've made this a couple times now, and I love it! My girls like to eat the clumps. The only problem is that I can't seem to stop eating it! I did one cup of coconut oil, and half cup butter,and half the salt. Thanks for another great recipe.
