Easy Homemade Granola With Nuts

Bake up a batch of Easy Homemade Granola with Nuts and serve with assorted dried fruits for a delicious and quick weekday breakfast! Like most people, we only cook a full breakfast on the weekends and opt for something a little quicker and easier for weekdays. Once I started making my own granola, boxed cereals lost a lot of their appeal.

One batch of this recipe will make about 10-12 servings and will stay fresh if stored in an airtight container for two to three weeks. Be sure to let the granola cool completely before sealing the container so that it does not sweat and create moisture. 

This easy granola recipe is sweetened with honey and is made with old-fashioned rolled oats and three different kinds of nuts — walnuts, almonds, and pecans. You can use any combination of the nuts that you have on hand just as long as you use one full cup of the nuts.

We like eating this granola just like cereal with milk, but I’ll often add a few dried cranberries or apricots and sometimes even fresh blueberries when we have them.
