Almond & Raisin Granola

Granola is a great breakfast backpacking recipe, or as a trail mix to munch on.

Almond & Raisin Granola


  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp neutral vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup agave nectar (or honey or maple syrup)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, chopped fine
  • 1/3 cup raisins


Preheat the oven to 325°.

Mix the oats through sea salt in a large bowl. Whisk the oil, agave, brown sugar and vanilla together, pour over the oats and mix until combined.

Spread evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Add the almonds, bake for 15 minutes. Add in the raisins, let cool fully. Store tightly sealed and use within 2 weeks. Granola will crisp up as it cools.

Makes about 1 quart.
