Homemade Honey Fig Granola

There is something so versatile about granola! A snack, breakfast cereal, yogurt topping, chia pudding topping, fruit crumble topping, the list goes on. AND there are so many different add-ins you can use to make it your personal fave.

It's been a wonderful college-girl food for me, because it's an easy fix-ahead breakfast for mornings that come super early.

This one is a great basic granola recipe that I based off of Anthropologie's blog-


  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups almonds
  • 1/4 cup pecans (because that was all I had left in my kitchen, but feel free to sub some of the almonds for pecans!)
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tsp of honey
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried, chopped figs (or any combination of dried fruits- I used figs, prunes, cranberries, and raisins)
  • 3 Tbsp chia seeds (or flax seeds)
How to Make It:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients but dried fruit and chia seeds in a bowl. Spread the mixture evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring half way through. Take it out and let it cool 10-15 minutes. Stir in dried fruit and chia seeds, and enjoy!!

Happy Thursday, all.    :)
