Once your granola has cooled, you can start to package and decorate your gifts.  I used my favorite mason jars.  

Have fun decorating your gifts!

Homemade Granola


Dry Ingredients
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup nuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • mini chocolate chips, dried fruit, sunflower seeds
Wet Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/6 cup water (which is 2 TBS plus 2 tsps.)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  1. In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts and coconut.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Place the entire mixture on a large baking sheet that has been lined with foil and sprayed or you can use parchment paper.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from the oven and stir the granola. Then return the pan to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes. Take the pan out and stir again.
  7. You will keep doing this until the granola is nice and brown. Set your timer! Because, you could forget and end up with a huge mess on your hands.
  8. After the granola has cooled down, you can add dried fruit, sunflower seeds, mini chocolate chips; whatever is your favorite!
  9. Store in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
