Homemade granola and red berries topping for Skyr

Granola is a breakfast favourite, known for its heartiness and satisfying crunch. This easy recipe invites you to make your own homemade granola and red berries topping for skyr, adding a burst of flavour and colour to your breakfast routine.


  • Preheat the oven to 170°C.
  • Heat honey and butter in a small pan over medium-high heat until the butter has melted and they are well combined.
  • Pour honey and butter over the oats in a bowl. Add cinnamon and salt.
  • Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until it turns golden brown. Check regularly and stir it to ensure even browning and prevent burning.
  • Allow the granola to cool on the baking sheet while gently crumbling it with a spatula. Once cooled, store it in an airtight container.
To serve
  • Divide skyr into 2 bowls and sprinkle a portion of the granola over each.
  • Remove red berries from their stems and scatter them over the bowls.

If you want your granola to have a mix of textures, you can create bigger clusters of oats by not stirring the mixture too much before baking. Before baking, gently press the mix down to make the ingredients stick together, resulting in larger, chunkier clusters.

Questions about homemade granola

How long does homemade granola last?
Homemade granola can last 2-3 weeks, depending on the specific ingredients used. Store it in an airtight container at room temperature and make sure that it has cooled completely before storing it, as any residual heat can create moisture and lead to faster spoilage.
Can you freeze homemade granola?
Yes, you can freeze homemade granola. Freezing is a great way to extend the shelf life and keep it fresh for longer. To freeze, leave it to cool completely before putting it in freezer-safe bags or containers for up to 6 months. Thaw in the fridge or at room temperature.
What to put in homemade granola?
Homemade granola lets you play with ingredients and flavours. In this recipe, oats provide a hearty base, while honey adds sweetness and butter brings richness, resulting in a satisfying crunch. A touch of salt and a hint of cinnamon enhance the flavour and depth. If you want to experiment, you can add nuts, seeds, or dried fruit for extra taste and texture.
Why is my homemade granola not crunchy?
Your homemade granola might not turn out as crunchy as desired for several reasons. It is essential to bake the granola until it achieves a golden, crisp texture. Additionally, ensure that you spread the mixture evenly, in a thin layer, to promote uniform baking and help prevent uneven crunchiness. Once baked, allowing the granola to cool completely on the baking sheet before transferring it to a storage container is essential. This prevents condensation, which could lead to a loss of crunchiness. Lastly, store it in an airtight container at room temperature to maintain the crunch.
