Molly Wizenberg’s recipe for granola in Bon Appetit- she kind of warns you in the article but I’m going to make it a touch more obvious:


And… exhale.

Seriously. You will never, ever buy granola again. And now I have to add “makes her own granola” to the list of things I can’t say out loud, lest I sound like a total asshole. Thanks a lot, Molly.

Everyday Granola by Molly Wizenberg

  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut*
  • 3 tablespoons (packed) brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon (generous) salt
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup assorted dried fruit
  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Mix first 7 ingredients in large bowl. Stir honey and oil in saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture; toss. Spread on prepared sheet. Bake until golden, stirring every 10 minutes, about 40 minutes. Place sheet on rack. Stir granola; cool. Mix in fruit. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 week ahead. Store airtight.

    * Available at specialty foods stores and natural foods stores.

    Eat by the handful. Ignore judgy looks from dog.

    About This Lady

    I am a writer who has lived in DC, Los Angeles and Chicago. In the morning, I write novels. During the day, I write ads, brochures, websites and blogs. At night, I don't do any writing because that's too much writing.

    Trying to be Auntie Mame but right now I feel more like Liz Lemon in execution. It's a process, people.

    I have a food/fiction blog called Some Kitchen Stories.
