How to make 20 Minute Granola, (more or less)!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

This granola is simple, it is easy, it is perfect for my little RV kitchen oven. Since it is made with honey and no other liquid, it really does crisp up, cook and stir, until golden brown in about 20 minutes. Of course, if you would like it a darker brown, add a few more minutes!

The ingredient list is short, the mixing together is quick and you can do all the kitchen clean up while it is baking in the oven, plus you have this wonderful oatmeal cookie smell to enjoy while you perform sink duty!

You might notice that there is no dried fruit in this recipe. That is our preference, if you like fruit in your granola, rather than on your granola, feel free to stir some in as soon as the granola is removed from the oven. The same for a bit of cinnamon, feel free to add 1/2 teaspoon or so.

20 Minute Granola, (more or less)!

20 Minute Granola
adapted from:  Little House Living
350-degree oven

41/2 c old fashioned oats
1 c sliced almonds
1/8 t salt (if desired)
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c coconut oil, melted
1/2 c honey

Combine everything in a large bowl, mixing well. Scrape into a prepared 9X13 pan, spread the mixture evenly to avoid any thin spots.

Bake 10 minutes, stir well, bringing ingredients from bottom to top, corners into the center of the pan.

Bake 5 minutes, stir well, bringing ingredients from bottom to top, corners into the center of the pan.

Bake 5 minutes more, stir well.

Remove from oven and let cool, stirring once or twice.


If not done to your liking, turn off the oven and let the mixture continue to bake for 5-10 minutes more. Remove from oven, let cool, stirring once or twice.

Let cool completely, package into a container with a tight fit lid.
