Everyday Nutty Granola


Do you love granola? Everyone has a different idea of a “favorite” granola, so let me tell you about this one. This one is nutty, flavorful, lightly sweetened – a good easy bite with a bit of a crunch, and a slight chewiness from the tart cherries. That’s the way I like my granola. Top your greek yogurt with a handful, enjoy a small bowl of it with milk, or sprinkle some on your waffles or pancakes.

Nutty Everyday Granola

Nutty Everyday Granola


  • 1/4 cup (1/2  stick) butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries


  1. Heat the oven to 275 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the butter in a large sautee pan or pot over low heat. Stir in the honey, vanilla and salt, then stir in the oats, almonds and pumpkin seeds. Add the brown sugar and stir gently until everything is completely combined. Transfer the granola to the parchment-lined baking sheet, spreading granola out in a single layer.
    3. Toast the granola, stirring every 15 to 20 minutes, until the mixture is golden brown, about 60 minutes. Remove the tray and set aside to cool, then add cherries and stir well to combine. Store granola in an airtight container.
