Homemade Granola

I love this granola recipe because it’s made from ingredients I always have on hand and I can add whatever nuts or fruit to it that I have!


1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup sunflower kernels
1/4 cup raisins
3 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
*I don’t always use all of these ingredients but I make sure I have the same amounts.
In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, peanut butter, corn syrup (honey), butter and vanilla.
Stir in the oats, sunflower kernels, raisins, wheat germ and sesame seeds.
Fold in chocolate chips.
Press into an 8×8 greased dish.
Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until set and edges are browned.
Cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

  1. Oh these look so good. It would be a great snack for nursing mommys…I’ve been looking for some ideas! Do you use old fashioned oats or quick cooking ones?

    1. Kelly,

      Old fashioned oats typically, but I had some quick cooking oats in the pantry this time so that’s what I used!!

  2. I love homemade granola. I haven't made any in a long time. You have inspired me to pull out my recipe and make some this weekend. Maybe I will get a post up with my recipe!
