Store bought snacks are just not cutting it these days.  We are really enjoying healthy homemade snacks and breakfasts.  My munchkin loves this granola for breakfast and I love feeding it to her.  A real wholesome breakfast ‘cereal’.

Loaded with fruit, nuts, cinnamon and honey; most times I can hardly get the granola packed up and into a mason jar before its gone.  We all love this as a sweet treat too.  Perfect to top yogurt, ice cream, grape salad, or eat alone.  We can’t get enough and I am sure you will love it too!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes
Course Breakfast
Cuisine American
Method Oven
Servings 1 Bowl


  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup pecans, finely ground
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup refined coconut oil, for no coconut flavor
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup apricots, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Line an 18 by 13-inch rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set pan aside. In large bowl, toss together oats, ground pecans, sesame seeds, spices and salt.
  • Combine coconut, maple syrup and honey in a medium saucepan. Warm mixture over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about six minutes. Gently stir the mixture frequently. Remove pot from the heat. Add vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  • Pour sugar-mixture over oat-mixture. Stir with a wood spoon to combine. At first, the granola will be thick and sticky. Continue stirring, breaking up any lumps of sugar/oats with the back of the wooden spoon, until the honey mixture is evenly distributed. Stir in fruit and mix well to combine.
  • Press mixture very firmly into prepared pan. Bake until golden brown and aromatic, about 45 minutes. Remove pan from oven. Immediately break granola into pieces. Allow granola to cool. Store granola in a covered container.
