This nutty granola is perfect for parfaits, or for an easy on-the-go snack by itself! If you're in a hurry from school to practice and you need a healthy snack for the car ride, grab a cup of this Honey Nut Granola!

Ingredients for Honey Nut Granola:

4 1/2 Cups of Quick Oats

1 6oz. Bag of Sliced Almonds

1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar

1/3 Cup of Canola Oil

1/2 Cup of Honey

1 teaspoon Vanilla

1Tablespoon Cinnamon


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In a large bowl stir together the quick oats and almonds - set aside.

In a separate bowl, stir together the brown sugar, canola oil, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. Once these ingredients are fully mixed, add to the oats and almonds. Stir together until the oats and almonds are evenly coated. (This may take a minute, but you don't want to put dry uncoated oats on your cookie sheets.)

Divide the mixture between two cookie sheets and evenly spread onto the trays. Bake for 10-11minutes, then take out the trays and stir the mixture. Put both trays back in the oven for an additional 10-11 minutes. Once the granola is removed from the oven it will harden a bit as it cools, creating that famous granola crunch.


To build your parfait, start with a layer of low fat vanilla yogurt. Next, add a layer of Honey Nut Granola followed by the fresh fruit of your choice. Top with more Honey Nut Granola, and continue with as many layers as you crave!
