Nutty Six-Ingredient Granola

Nutty Six-Ingredient Granola

Say goodbye to store-bought granola because you can now make your own using six simple pantry ingredients. Wholesome homemade granola is free from preservatives and additives.


6 cups (81 grams) rolled oats (certified gluten-free if ncessary)
1/2 cup (109 grams) mild-flavored cooking oil (such as canola or melted coconut oil)
1/2 cup (170 grams) honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cup (234 grams) of walnuts, roughly chopped (almonds work well too)
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a separate bowl, add the oil, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds to soften the mixture, and whisk until well-combined. Pour over dry mixture and stir to coat thoroughly.

Add in chopped walnuts and other desired seeds or nuts. Spread on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray and bake at 300 degrees F for 25 minutes, stirring frequently (every 10 minutes) to ensure even baking. It should be golden brown when it is done.

Add in dried fruit and coconut flakes after granola is done baking (optional).

Allow granola to cool on baking sheet—break up large pieces as needed—and store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
