Homemade Granola with Honey And Sesame Oil is one of my favourite large batch-snacks to both make and eat. When I’m busy and on the go I eat it by the handful. When I have time in the mornings I add a dollop of apple butter or plain yogurt, or a splash of milk and eat it like cereal. The recipe makes a large amount, however it stores well in a large airtight container in the cupboard for up to one month. The recipe is also customizable for any nuts or dried fruit you have on hand.

Sweetener And Oil Swaps For Homemade Granola With Honey And Sesame Oil
I’ve played with other sweetener and oil combos, however, honey and sesame oil is my favourite! If you do swap the oil and sweetener, please note the baking time can change, so keep your eye on the granola once it’s on the oven. Other combinations I’ve tried:
- maple syrup and walnut oil
- maple syrup and vegetable oil
- agave and peanut oil
Ideas For Granola Ingredient Combinations:
Try any of these combinations for a total of 1 cup of nuts and 1 cup of dried fruit for the granola recipe:
- 1/2 cup almonds, 1/2 cup cashews, 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1 cup pecans, 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup almonds, 1 cup dried cherries
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, 1/2 cup pecans, 1 cup chopped dried apricots
- 1 cup walnut pieces, 1 cup dried apple pieces
- 1 cup hazelnuts, 1/2 cup dried banana, 1/2 cup chopped dried mango
