Make this together: Personalized Granola Favors


Small jars of granola are an adorably budget friendly favor to consider for your wedding. They’re a favor the two of you can make together, and guests love that you did it yourself. We used the standard labels for our granola, but you could customize your labels with your wedding colors or design.

Wedding Favor Granola Recipe – recipe makes enough to fill 12 small jars.

4 cups oats
2 cups almonds
1/2 cup canola oil (or light olive oil or your favorite neutral oil)
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dried peaches
1 cup  flaked coconut

Preheat the oven to 350°.


Put the almonds in a large plastic bag or between two dish towels. Smash them with a hammer until they are the size of little pebbles — I like them broken into roughly four pieces each.


In a large bowl, mix the oats and almonds together.

In a small saucepan, heat the oil, honey and vanilla together until they’re bubbly.


Spread the whole mixture out in one layer on a rimmed baking pan. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.


While the mixture is baking, cut up your peaches into thin strips. I like to use a clean pair of scissors. 


Don’t forget your coconut flakes!


Pull the granola-filled rimmed baking sheet from the oven and stir through the peaches and coconut. Bake for another 10 minutes.


Remove from the oven, stir through and let cool.

While the granola is cooling, get your jars ready for filling. Make sure they’re clean before you start filling.


Fill each jar up with your granola and treat your guests with something you made!
