Amber’s Granola

Hi friends!

Here is the recipe for the awesome granola in the videos.

[Be careful- though this stuff is good for you, because of all the nuts it is kinda high in fat. Good fats, sure. But just don’t eat it for every meal every day. Okay? Okay.]

Amber’s Granola


  • 3 cups whole wheat rolled oats
  • 2 1/2 cups of assorted nuts [dealer’s choice- walnuts, pecans, peanuts, whatevs]
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 4 oz. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla


Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. [You could also add dried fruit if you like. I do.]

Melt the fake butter and honey together. Once melted, add the vanilla and take off the heat.

Pour over the dry ingredients and stir.

Spread onto a lipped baking pan and bake in the oven for 17 minutes at 350 degrees.

Stir at 10 minutes.

Stir at 15 minutes.

Then watch closely! When the granola reaches a sweet little brown shade, pull it out.

And y’all, this stuff is GOOD. I’ve eaten with yogurt a few mornings this weekend and I have been THRILLED with it.

Thanks again to my sweet friend Amber- here’s the link to her blog. Go send her some love.

  1. If you eat that fake butter I will come up there myself and remove it from your fridge. Coconut oil, my friend. A healthy fat and not likely to cause you to sprout another ovary.

    But otherwise, it looks delish!!

  2. Or you could just use real butter and call it a day. You’re already not eating it for every meal, right? So what’s a couple extra calories to save you from the extra-ovary fate.
