Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, combine oats, pecans, butter, honey, and salt; mix well to coat. Transfer to a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and spread in an even layer. Bake until oats are lightly golden, 30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Let cool completely on sheet.


Cook's Notes

To make a nut-free version, omit the pecans and increase the oats to 4 cups. Store in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 3 weeks.

This is my go-to granola recipe. I love it! I add a bit of shredded coconut to it and use regular salt as kosher makes it too salty. I also don’t bake it as long or it burns.

I love this recipe, I use coconut oil for the fat instead of butter. Delicious!!

I love this granola. I had another recipe that I had been using for a long time, but it called for a lot more butter and sugar. This one is quite a bit lighter and just as tasty!

The recipe calls for too much salt. Use 1/4 tsp instead!
