Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola

Homemade granola is a great way to add fiber and heart healthy fats to your day.

Our Teaching Kitchen Chef, Max Goldstein MS, RD, shares an easy to make, customizable recipe that cuts the fat and sugar that you find in store bought granola.


2 cups Oats, old fashioned
½ cup Walnuts, chopped
1 tsp Cinnamon, ground
½ tsp Nutmeg, ground
½ cup Applesauce, unsweetened
2 tbsp Maple syrup
2 tsp Canola oil
⅓ cup Raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and cooking spray.
  2. Mix oats, walnuts, and spices together in a large bowl.
  3. Stir in the applesauce, maple syrup, and oil; evenly coat the dry ingredients.
  4. Evenly spread on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  5. Add the raisins, stir, and bake for 10 more minutes.
  6. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
