The Very Divine – Homemade Granola Recipe

In my attempt to live healthy, I am forever trying to find ways to eat oats in recipes that are simple and delicious. And, this granola recipe is my favourite way to munch on them.

You can chomp it as a snack by itself, top it over smoothies or use it over or (as base) under any dessert. Granola is the best way to add that filling, crunchy, energy packed bite into your dish.




Ingredients: (for 1 bowl granola)

Dry –

  • Almonds – 8-10, Chopped
  • Oats – 1 cup dry rolled oats (shown here – Quaker oats)
  • Walnuts – 4-5, Chopped
  • Raisins – 12-15
  • Any other dried fruits, nuts, seeds, coconut flakes, choco chips, or just anything as you please.

Binding Mix –

  • Butter – unsalted, solid 1 tablespoon (options – coconut oil)
  • Brown Sugar – 1-2 tablespoon
  • Honey – 1 tablespoon (options – maple syrup, similar sweet syrup)
  • Peanut Butter – 2 tablespoons



Chop 8-10 almonds and 3-5 walnuts into medium size pieces.
Add 1 cup oats and any other dry ingredient like nuts or seeds to tray, that require dry roasting.
In microwave or oven: To get that crunch, dry roast the oats and nuts until they become golden brown. Continue to stir frequently as oats tend to burn easily.
If using a pan on stove, dry roast the almonds and walnuts first to ensure a good crunch, and then add oats for further roasting.


Continue to roast until everything gets light/golden brown. Do not forget to stir frequently as oats tend to burn very easily.

Binding Mix:

To make the binding mix, add 1 tablespoon butter to microwave safe bowl.
To that, add 1-2 tablespoon brown sugar.
To that, add 1 table spoon honey and heat the mix in microwave for 1 minute or until the butter melts. You can heat the mix on stove as well.
To the melted mix, add 2 table spoon peanut butter.


If peanut butter isn’t runny enough, heat for few seconds, as required.
Now, simply stir the mix to make a smooth paste.
To the paste, add the dry roasted mix of oats and nuts and give a good stir.
Mix the ingredients very well until the binding mix coats all the dry ingredients. Your basic version of granola is ready!
You can introduce different textures and variations to this basic granola, by adding other ingredients like dried fruits, nuts, seeds, coconut flakes or even chocolate chips. Absolutely anything as you please. I just added raisins.
And give it a good stir.

Your hearty, delicious ‘Nuts n Raisin’ granola is ready!!

Store it in an air tight container and relish the chewy, crunchy, energy packed treat anytime, anywhere.
