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.




  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bake in a 300°F oven 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown, stirring after 10 minutes. Remove from oven. If you like, stir in dried fruit.

  • 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.)
