A 15 minute quick homemade granola recipe which is healthy, crunchy and made with honey, almonds and apricots. This honey granola recipe is quick and very easily modifiable to add the nuts and fruits of your choice.
We are a granola loving family and every time I put one of those big Granola or Muesli boxes, I would kick myself for not trying to make the basic granola at home. The store bought are super expensive, and come with added sugar and preservatives! I also miss my favorite nuts and fruits in every bite!
Why compromise, when you can decide the sweetness your granola should have, how many nuts and fruits it should have. My daughter loves to have fruits in every bite too.
It’s the simplest recipe I have ever come across. This honey granola recipe is easy, it’s delicious, it’s chewy and crispy all at the same time. We now consume this as a snack as well. Well, I do because I hate anything soggy and adding milk to granola makes it just that! I am developing the taste slowly with yogurt, some fresh fruits and will hopefully get there.
Here is a basic honey granola recipe I tried my hands at! You can add fruits, nuts and seeds of your choice and liking. You can adjust sweetness as per your preference.

Quick Honey Granola Recipe | Healthy Granola with Almonds and Apricots
A 15 minute quick homemade granola recipe which is healthy, crunchy and made with honey, almonds and apricots.
- 1 cup Rolled oats not quick/instant
- 1 tbsp Vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp Honey or more if needed as per your taste
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder optional
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp Seeds like chia seeds/flax seeds optional
- 1/2 cup Dried fruits & nuts of your choice (I have used apricots and almonds)
Mix the oats with salt, oil, honey, vanilla and stir to combine or mix with your hands.
Preheat the oven to 150 degree C and spread the mix in the oven tray (in a thin layer), on a cookie liner or parchment paper and bake for 7 to 10 mins or until light golden brown.
Bring it out of the oven and use a fork to separate the mix and add nuts, dried fruits and seeds (if using). I have used dried apricots and sliced almonds. Stir to combine and store in an air tight jar once cold.
I have used both the rods in my oven and a fan to bake these at 150 degree C. If you don't have fan in your oven, then increase the temperature by 10 degree C
