Overnight Homemade Granola

Homemade granola is much cheaper and you get to determine the flavors!
Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Servings - 12 servings


  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla (or use homemade vanilla extract!)
  • 2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, like walnuts or almonds
  • Milk or yogurt, for serving
  • Fresh fruit, on the side or mixed in


  • Preheat the oven to 325. Spray 2 rimmed cookie sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter or oil,honey and vanilla.
  • In a larger mixing bowl, toss together the quick cooking oats, rolled oats, cinnamon, ginger and chopped nuts.
  • Pour the honey mixture over the oat mixture and mix together.
  • Spread the granola onto the prepared cooking sheets and press to cover the bottom. If there is a little empty space on the cookie sheet, that's okay. You just want the granola not to be too thick in places and even all around, so it cooks evenly.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Then turn off the oven after 10 minutes and let the granola finish cooking as the oven cools down. It's ready to eat the next morning. Use a metal spatula to loosen and break the granola into chunks for serving.
  • Serve Overnight Granola with milk or yogurt and some fresh fruit.
