Homemade Almond- Raisin Granola

I love granola with soy yogurt for breakfast, perfect way to start out our day. Store bought granola is packed with high fat, sugar and calories. So, I prefer to make it at home with half the calories, fat and sugar.


  • Rolled oats - 2 cups
  • Almond chopped - 1/2 cup
  • Sunflower seeds - 2 tblsp
  • Raisins - 1/4 cup
  • Flax powder - 2 tblsp
  • Cinnamon powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Brown sugar 1/4 cup
  • Honey - 1/4 cup
  • Water - 2 tblsp
  • Peanut butter - 3 tblsp
  • Almond extract - 1 tsp
  • Pre-heat the oven at 320 degrees and grease a baking tray
  • In a big bowl mix all the dry ingredients
  • Heat the pan with honey, peanut butter and water for 5 minutes
  • Now stir in extract and remove from the heat
  • Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir well until everything is coated
  • Mixture will be a bit dry at first but keep mixing it until everything come together
  • Scoop onto baking sheet
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring once half way through baking
  • Allow it to cool for about 10-15 minutes on the baking tray (Makes about 5 cups)
  • Store in an air-tight container up to a month

  1. Great recipe- am going to try it soon. Can we substitute brown sugar with something else which is not actual sugar ?

    1. Thanks. You can try using honey, agave or brown rice syrup instead of brown sugar.
