Author Notes:

When I don't have any granola in my fridge, I make this instead, and sprinkle it atop yogurt. Be bold with your salt.

Makes: however much you want it to make


  • Old-fashioned oats
  • Walnuts, lightly crushed with your hands
  • Cinnamon
  • Good flaky salt
In This Recipe


  1. Combine all ingredients but the salt in a dry skillet, adapting the nut-oat ratio depending on your preference. Start with just a shake of cinnamon. Toast over low heat, stirring or shaking, until the oats turn a light golden color and you can smell the nuts toasting. Add a good pinch of salt.
  2. Sprinkle this over a bowl of yogurt, and stir in some fresh fruit or jam. If you can get your hands on savory yogurt or labneh, try it drizzled with best-quality olive oil. (And maybe even some roasted carrots?)
