Classic Granola Recipe Without Sugar

Sharing is Caring

This Classic Granola Recipe is a simple granola that is sweetened with honey and so delicious. It is the perfect morning treat and is a recipe that is easy to make your own.

It is a rainy day in our area. Stormy in fact. With the weather so crazy outside I am going through the recipes and granola always seems to be a great one for rainy days. It makes the house smell amazing and a warm bowl of it fresh from the oven is a perfect movie snack. So granola it is. Granola is so simple to make yet it is one of those things that seem a lot more complicated then it really is.

The best part is you can adapt this recipe by using the basics of the sweetener, oil and oats. At times I like to add dried fruit like cherries, raisins or cranberries. Other times I am wanting more of a dessert style granola and that is where my Old Fashioned Dark Chocolate Walnut Granola comes in. Today I am sticking to a simpler variation though nonetheless tasty. This classic granola is so delicious and goes well alone, with this homemade yogurt and even as a cereal with milk poured over.

What You’ll Need To Make This Classic Granola Recipe

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup raw honey

3 cups old fashioned rolled oats

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 cup pecans (almonds and walnuts work well too)

Store in an air tight container in your pantry. I find that mason jars work perfectly and love this La Parfait Jar.

Serve alone, in milk, over ice cream or with yogurt.
