Big batch granola is perfect for families! It lasts my family of 2 adults and 3 kids for about 2 weeks!
I’ve been making this granola recipe since my husband and I got married. It’s a recipe that my mom gave to me, and it’s been one of our favorites. We’ve tried other granola recipes, and found some we liked, but we always end up coming back to this delicious recipe!
Lately this big batch granola recipe has been the only cereal Dan or I eats, and we’re working towards it being the only cereal the kids eat as well. Because of this, the small batches just weren’t cutting it. I had to make big batch granola so we could make it through without me having to bake it every week!
This recipe lasts our family about 2 weeks or so with us eating it every day. It makes a lot of granola. I store it in a container that was full of animal crackers from Costco. The animal crackers were 4 lbs.
If you need great containers, those animal cracker containers now hold my flour and sugar for baking, as well as this entire big batch of granola (and the animal crackers are really tasty as well!). Keeping the granola in a sealed container keeps it fresh tasting and crunchy.
I make this recipe in a roasting pan, but you can make it in any large oven-safe pan.
To make Big Batch Granola:
- 16 cups old-fashioned oats
- 6 cups nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, you choose)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 cup oil
- 1 cup honey
- 4 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 300º.
In a roasting pan, measure oats, nuts, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
In a saucepan, heat oil and honey over low heat, just until they can be combined. Stir in vanilla. Pour this mixture over the oat mixture.
Bake for 45 minutes (or until golden brown), stirring every 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool before storing in an airtight container.
Big Batch Granola recipe includes: oats, honey, nuts.
