Granola from Foxfield Inn

There is something about a snowy wintery morning that makes me want to have Granola.  This was such a morning today here in Charlottesville VA.  We got a bit over 3 inches of fresh snow – on top of the 14 inches total from last week.  Luckily it warmed up today and some melting has occurred.  It’s not gone just not as much as this morning.

Obviously, I digressed a bit there.  Back to the Granola.  I had used up the last batch over the weekend for a special guest request.  If a guest doesn’t want the “Chef’s Choice” entree we offer 4 alternates for them to choose from – one of which is Homemade Granola with Honey Vanilla Greek Yogurt.

Today was a great day to make a fresh batch.  I like lots of nuts and seeds so this recipe does contain more than the normal recipes.  Just cut back on the amounts if you aren’t as into nutty Granola as I am.

If you haven’t made Granola before it is incredibly easy and tastes so much better than the store bought varieties – even the gourmet brands.

Nutty Granola
Print recipe

4     cups     oatmeal, regular not minute or instant
1     cup      almonds, coarsely chopped
1     cup      cashews, coarsely chopped
1/2  cup      sunflower seeds
1/2  cup      pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
3/4  cup      shredded coconut, sweetened
2     tsp       cinnamon
1     tsp       ginger
1     tsp      Kosher salt
1/4  cup     brown sugar
1/2  cup     honey
1/2  cup     vegetable oil
1     cup     dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 300F.

Mix oatmeal, nuts & seeds, coconut, cinnamon, ginger, salt and brown sugar in a large bowl.

Combine honey and oil in a bowl and stir well.  Add to dry ingredients.  Mix well.

Spread mixture onto two rimmed baking sheets.  Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

Cool on baking sheets for 10-15 minutes (helps develop clumps).  Pour granola into large bowl and add cranberries.  Store in airtight containers for two weeks.


  1. substitute dried blueberries for the dried cranberries (Dan’s favorite)
  2. substitute sliced almonds for chopped almonds
  3. increase honey to 3/4 cup and delete the brown sugar
We hope you enjoy as much as we do.
