How To Eat Oats: A Recipe for Big Batch Granola

Are you an oats family? I grew up eating oats almost every day for breakfast. We’d have rolled oats with milk and fresh fruit and nuts. Yogurt oats and honey. Hot oats. You name it, we probably had it. I still love oats, and now my little family loves oats. To spread the oats love, I’m sharing the second post in my “how to eat oats” series. This recipe for “big batch” granola is a favorite. What I love most about granola is it’s hard to get it wrong. You can literally add together almost any quantity of oats, seeds and nuts, flour (if you want), fat, sweetener (optional), and voila! Throw it in the oven and you have some granola.

This granola recipe is super simple; our kids can make it themselves (besides the putting into the oven part). They love eating it with yogurt, but my personal favorite way to eat it is with ice cold milk and some berries.

Recipe notes: This recipe is not very sweet, so take that into consideration when mixing together the recipe. If you like a sweeter granola, you may want to add some sweetener. Also, if you use gluten free oats, this recipe is gluten free!

Homemade Big Batch Granola

makes about 8 cups

Ingredients

  • 6 cups old fashioned rolled oats (if you use gluten free oats, this recipe will be gluten free)
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped almonds (or any chopped nut)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup olive oil (or coconut oil or your choice in oil)
  • 2/3 cup raw honey (or maple syrup or your choice in sweetener)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven, toss granola.
  5. Bake for another 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve with yogurt and fresh (or frozen) fruit. Or sprinkle on top of ice cream for some crunch. Or grab a handful when you’re hungry in the afternoon. I have a few other granola recipes, if you’d like to try them out! Enjoy!

    I’m sure this is obvious to anyone who has made homemade granola before, but how do I store it? Sealed container at room temp? 🙂 Just made this and it’s delicious!

    • Rebecca says:

      Yes, this is exactly how I store it. Usually in a large vintage ball canning jar! We go through it quickly, too!

  3. […] some cookies? Whip up a batch using ingredients from your well-stocked pantry. Need more granola? Make some! Craving something salty? Make popcorn and get creative with the seasonings! Out of bread? Make the […]

    This sounds simple and delicious! Have you used any other type of flour? My boy has an almond allergy. Thanks!

    • Rebecca says:

      Hi Selina! I haven’t tried this specific recipe w/out almond flour, but I’ve done similar recipes with whole wheat flour. This recipe should work with ww (or even coconut)?!

    Thank you!
