One thing is certain, I am cooking WAY more while on this quarantine for Coronavirus. Most days I am having my kids help me with the cooking. I call it Science and Lifeskills! Bubba, my oldest, is obsessed with yogurt. Seriously the kid eats more yogurt than anyone I know. He asked me the other day for granola. Lately, I have been getting my yogurt from a gal I workout with but because of Coronavirus that has been put on hold. So I began searching for recipes. I came across one that seemed pretty easy and I had everything in the cupboards so…we were off to make granola.

Oh my gosh you guys, this stuff is GOOD! It’s super simple and it’s a basic recipe so you could add anything to it to jazz up the flavors!!

We started by laying out oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt on a cookie sheet. I used silpat baking mat but you could use parchment paper too.

Mix vegetable oil or melted coconut oil, honey, and vanilla together and spread over oats. I used my hands to mix it really well and then flatten it out evenly.

Then you bake. It’s so darn easy! I had everything in my house and my kids are devouring it! Win-Win!

Once it’s baked you wait until it cools completely. Break it apart and I like to store it in jars. It looks nice and it stores perfectly!


  • 3 cups of rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil or melted coconut oil
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup honey
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line cookie sheet with Silpat or Parchment paper.
  2. Spread out oats and sprinkle with brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Mix together oil, vanilla, and honey.
  4. Pour oil mixture over oats and stir until coated. I like to use my hands for an even coat.
  5. Pat down oats to have an even layer on the pan.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes. Granola is done when it is golden brown.
  7. Let cool completely and then break up and store in an air tight container.

(This is a basic recipe so you can add anything you want to it! Nuts, dried fruit, corn flakes and coconut flakes are great options)
