Kid’s Easy Granola Crunch

Posted on 05 July 2010 by noelskitchen

With summer here and the kids at home, they will be looking for quick and easy snacks to entertain their friends or themselves. This week’s blog topics will hopefully offer you ideas on inviting your kids into the kitchen to start cooking. I’m sure your kids will soon experience the pride in preparing such delicious treats for their friends and themselves. The kids will enjoy this crisy, crunchy homemade cereal for breakfast or a snack. This is one simple treat I’ll have on hand next week for the backyard campout.

Kid’s Easy Granola Crunch


4 cups quick oats

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup butter

1/4 cup honey

1 cup slivered almonds (optional)

1 cup chopped peanuts (optional)

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1 cup dried banana or fruit of your choice (optional)


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a 9×13 cookie sheet. Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, chopped nuts, fruit, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

In a microwavable bowl, microwave butter on high 1 minute or until melted.  Stir in honey. Pour melted butter and honey mixture over oat mixture, stirring until well coated. Spread evenly on lightly greased cookie sheet. 

This next step is where supervision from adults is needed.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring oat mixture every 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on cooling rack completely.

Sore in an airtight container.

Makes 12 servings.

Recipe Note: Serve on top of your favorite yogurt, ice cream or pie. Shredded Coconut is also a good addition to this recipe.
