Winter Granola

There are no words to describe this granola



Or maybe…

Um, can I have some more, please?

As you probably already know, I’m a big fan of granola.

Granola for cereal.

Chocolate granola bars.

Peanut butter granola bars.

Granola energy balls.

And I like the recipe even more when it’s a no-bake recipe like the ones above.

So, I admit that I was skeptical about this granola recipe when my sweet, beautiful cousin gave it to me a while back.  Because it’s baked.  And while still a very simple recipe, I was super-spoiled to my no-bake granola recipes.

I finally made them.  And there’s just no comparison.  Baked granola is in its own category.

The toasted coconut flakes are so amazing.

And the roasted pecans.

Oh.  My. Word.

It was love at first bite!

And the boys?

Well, they’re all over it.

Hayden even asked if we could eat it as cereal if we wanted.  I  guess we sure could.

You’ve gotta make this.  Since ours is half-gone already, I’m planning on making another batch really soon, packaging it up in mason jars with pretty ribbons and tags and giving it as gifts this year!

I’ll be quiet now.  And not because I could stop talking about how delicious this granola is….but because I need another bite of it.



  1. I’m drooling!!! I just printed out the recipe. It sounds amazing! Can’t wait to try! I am a granola addict(-;

  2. I just tried this. I overcooked it darnit. So it tastes a little burnt. Will have to try again.

  3. Oh. My. Gosh. I think I love you. We’re a granola lovin’ family…..gotta make this SOON!

  4. the directions say add the oil etc. I see no oil listed in the ingredients list. I am thinking it should be add the butter etc.?

    • Thank you Barbara! I did substitute butter instead of oil, and forgot to change it in the directions, too. So sorry. It’s corrected now. 🙂

  5. Thanks for the great recipe! I made them for teacher Christmas gifts. They LOVED it, and one teacher’s didn’t make it till the end of the day! Tonight, I am making more for our friends’ Christmas gifts. Thank you so much for sharing!

  6. Looks yummy and sounds easy! I’m trying to find healthy ways to fulfil my sweet tooth! Do you have any idea the nutritional values for this? Like how many calories? Thanks!

  7. I did the spark people nutritional value calculator for this…it did not find the white chico chips in the data base so that is not included.

    These numbers are for the full recipe….so you would need to divide by the number of servings it makes (I haven’t made it yet so not certain)

  8. I’ve been looking for something different to change up the same granola I’ve been making for years. The kids were a little reluctant as they love my old, trusty granola recipe. We all loved this one and will definitely add it to our favorite recipes. Can’t wait to try your other granola recipes. I mean you can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter, right? 😉

  9. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipes. Tried this one this week and loved it! Time to make more…
