Who doesn’t like granola?! Scrooge, that’s who. But besides him?!

Crunchy and sweet, granola is the perfect 
breakfast treat or snack to keep in your purse for when you and your little one 
need a pick me up.
This wee granola is a powerhouse of nutrition containing dried fruits, 
wheat germ and nuts — packed with vitamin B and magnesium to name just a 
few. You can easily serve the granola in a to-go cup for your toddler 
or pulse it in the food processor as a topping for fresh roasted peaches, yogurt or baked apples.
I always make a huge batch of this granola, sometimes even doubling the recipe so I have plenty for Kenya and other little guests who come over to play.

About the Author

Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. For the nutritional information it says 410 calories – what is the serving size? Thanks! Can’t wait to try this 🙂

  2. I followed the recipe as is, including the cooking time. It was delicious! I’m typing this while munching! 🙂

  3. Just pulled this out of the oven. It tastes amazing!
    I didn’t have cashews, so used all almonds. Cut the honey and oil by 1/4 c and used coconut oil instead of vegetable. Also added the fruit after it was finished cooking. Baked at 275 for 1 hr, stirring every 15 m.

  4. Great recipe! I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to make it. I used walnut oil instead of canola and mine is a little dark…. hopefully nobody minds. One thing is I would use parchment paper next time and stir it before it’s completely cooled. Mine got completely stuck to the pan but I just popped it back in the oven and it loosened up completely.

  5. My first success at granola!! Thank you, Catherine! I cooked it about 10 minutes less and I’d recommend putting the dried fuit in at the end. Mine were OK, but after a few days the cherries got hard. SOOOO delicious!
