How To Make Granola In Your Actifry Air Fryer: Super Easy Recipe

To say I’ve become obsessed with my actifry is an understatement. I’ve been using it nonstop and love finding new ways to quickly cook for my family without using a ton of oil!

I never wanted to rely or get hooked on quick deep dried food at home…fast food is hard enough to resist so I’ve never purchased a traditional deep fryer or cooked in oil on my stove before.  So if you’re used to a traditional deep fryer or deep frying with oil on your stove  I have no idea how this compares…all I know is I LOVE my air fryer and how crisp and delicious everything I make is!

By the way, this isn’t a sponsored actifry post…my husband gave me an actifry for Christmas that my kids had to open for me on Christmas morning while I was in a pretty sad state with the stomach flu on the bathroom floor :)

Moving on!

So I’ve avoided making granola forever because for some reason I had it in my head that it was overly complicated and I was always worried I’d burn it.  I finally tried it with my air fryer and it was the most ridiculously easy thing I’ve ever made and I’m so angry that I’ve been paying $5 a box for granola all these years!

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolls oats (I used No Name large flakes)
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds (or slivered if you prefer tiny things in your granola)
  • 2 teaspoons ground flax (next time I’m trying hemp hearts)
  • 1/4 cups craisins (or any dried fruit)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

You could also add cinnamon but I left it out because one of my kids doesn’t like it.

Mix everything well except for the dried fruit. Once thoroughly mixed add it to your actifry (mine has a spinner in the middle that gentle moves the granola around so it’s evenly toasted on its own) and set for 6 minutes.

Add in your dried fruit and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Once it’s finished spread it on a baking sheet to cool then store!

Enjoy on yogurt, sprinkle on top of hot oatmeal, give a handful to your kids to snack on…

Let me know if you try it!
