Store-bought granola is often loaded with hidden sugar, which makes the homemade version all the more worth your time. Rolled oats are lightly coated in maple syrup and toasted to perfection alongside your favorite nuts and seeds and cranberries. Paired with yogurt or milk, this is one endlessly customizable recipe you won’t hit snooze on.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.


To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Microwave oven by power - 700w



The Medium Shallow Dish


  • ½ cup (50g) rolled oats (not instant)
  • ¼ cup variety of nuts and seeds, such as pecans, sunflower seeds and/or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, or honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries (optional)


  1. Add the oats, nuts and seeds, coconut oil, water, and maple syrup into the Anyday dish. Stir well until fully combined.
  2. Cook uncovered in the microwave at Power Level 6tooltip for 5 minutes, or until the oats have started to brown a bit but are still slightly wet.
  3. Thoroughly stir the granola and continue cooking uncovered at Power Level 6tooltip for 2 minutes. If you’d like the granola more brown, continue adding more time at the same power level in 1-minute increments, stirring each time.
  4. Toss in the cranberries. Transfer the mixture to a plate in an even layer. Allow the granola to fully cool to room temperature, which will crisp it up.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Enjoy over yogurt, with milk, or sprinkle over fresh fruit.
  • Add chocolate chips once the granola cools for a trail mix treat.

Recipe notes

  • Save in an air-tight container for up to 1 month.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
