In this post, I share my favorite garden berries in a granola recipe.  You will end up making this daily when your homegrown berries are in season.

Garden Berries and Homemade Granola Recipe

This weekends favorite recipe was my yummy Berry Granola Delight which can be enjoyed at any time of the day.  This time of the year in the Midwest we are either enjoying Berries fresh from Florida or finishing up the berries we have frozen from last summer harvest.  In this recipe, I use my frozen blueberries that I harvest last year off of my bushes in the garden and some strawberries that were from Florida via my supermarket!   Posting recipes like this is a good reminder of what is yet to come from the garden.  If you don’t have any berry bushes now is the time to plant them so you can enjoy this recipe from your own harvest.

Garden Berry Granola Delight


This Granola recipe I have been using for years is a perfect addition to my frozen blueberries and strawberries from the early summer harvest.  It tastes even better when you add your favorite berries from the home garden.  There are so many delightful berries you can grow easily for a quick bountiful harvest. I am adding a little flax seed to my recipe today.  Be sure to share with me what you add to your rendition of my recipe.

Berries from the Garden Granola Delight Recipe


  • 4 cups oats (I use multi-grain)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey (I use creamed honey)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flax seed meal
  • 1/2 cup cashew pieces (or any other nut you like)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Put oats in a microwaveable bowl and cook for two minutes, stirring after one. (This warms the oats helping to melt all the ingredients together).
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir until very well blended.
  4. Pour mixture into two large oven safe dishes and bake for 20 minutes, stirring every five
  5. Spread on wax paper to cool.

Easy Dish to prepare any time of the day.  After preparing the homemade granola layer with the remaining ingredients and serve immediately.  You won’t believe how fresh and energized the ingredients will make you feel.

2-3 servings a day

Growing your own berries is super easy these days.  I grow strawberries almost year-round in my dome with at least enough for 1-2 servings in the early spring.  You can grow strawberries indoors under lights or containers of blueberries on your front porch.  Want to learn more?
