Homemade (Chocolate Cranberry Walnut) Granola Recipe

Homemade chocolate cranberry walnut granola.

I’ve talked about this homemade granola recipe for quite some time now. All my Instagram stories family knows how much we love this granola here at home. I am now making it at least once a week and the boys absolutely love it! It doesn’t last more than a couple of days. Mason loves to have it for breakfast with yogurt and fresh fruit and Evan prefers it as a healthy snack at lunch time.

This recipe is incredibly easy and calls for minimal ingredients. Plus it is a great healthy snack alternative to have now that the kids are at home.

Easy homemade granola recipe (Cranberry Walnut)


• Preheat oven to 350F

• In a large bowl, mix oats and walnuts. Set aside for later.

• In a saucepan mix oil, vanilla, cinnamon & honey. Bring this mixture to a boil on medium heat. Stir constantly until mixture becomes syrupy. It’ll help coat the oats properly.

• Pour saucepan mixture into your oats & nuts bowl. Fold carefully until oats are completely coated with the syrup.

• On a large nonstick baking pan, spread coated oats mixture. Make sure you create on thin layer for even baking. * You can also use parchment paper or grease your pan with butter if non-stick pan isn’t available.

• Bake for 10-15 minutes. Take out, mix and bake one more time for an additional 10-15 minted for a total baking time of 20-30 minutes depending on how toasty you like it.

• Once done, take out and let cool down for 20 minutes. You’ll want it to completely cool down. Otherwise your chocolate chips will melt right away.

• Once cooled, add cranberries & chocolate chips. Drizzle with honey and let it sit an additional 10 minutes.


You can serve as a cereal with fresh fruit & milk. Make a granola parfait with yogurt and fresh fruit. Add to Ice cream or simple enjoy as a snack while you work 😉 If you want to go the extra mile, Add a few spoonfuls of nut butter and make granola bars out of it!
