Course Breakfast
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 8


  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup puffed brown rice
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • ¼ c pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • optional: dried cranberries dried date slices


  1. Preheat the oven to 350oF and prepare a large sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl add the oats, rice puffs, cinnamon, salt, nuts and seeds. Set aside.

  3. In a small pan on the stovetop, add the honey and oil. Mix together under medium heat for a minute just until the contents combine together.

  4. Pour the honey and oil mixture on top of the oat mixture and mix all contents together until the oats are well coated.

  5. Using a spatula pour the granola onto the sheet pan and spread into a thin layer.

  6. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

  7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for at least 10 minutes (this part is the hardest). Avoid mixing it so the granola doesn’t break into small pieces.

  8. Once cool, break up the granola into medium to small pieces. At this point you can add any dried fruit you wish.

  9.  Store granola in an airtight container for up to two weeks (if it lasts that long!) Enjoy!
