At Abilene's Victorian Inn in Kansas, chef Adrian Potter bakes this favorite granola for guests. You can eat it with milk or layered in a parfait with yogurt and fruit. We love how the recipe lets you customize the nuts and fruit to your taste.


  • 2 cups regular rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans or slivered almonds
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash ground allspice or nutmeg
  • Dash salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit (such as, raisins, golden raisins, currents, tart red cherries, blueberries, cranberries, snipped apricots, snipped apples and/or snipped dates) (optional)


  1. Lightly grease a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the oats, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice and salt; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat butter and honey over medium heat until butter melts, stirring occasionally. Drizzle over the oats mixture; toss to coat. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in a 300 degrees F oven 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown, stirring after 10 minutes. Remove from oven. If you like, stir in dried fruit.
  4. Spread granola on a large piece of foil to cool. Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days. (Or place in freezer bags and freeze for up to 2 months.)
