Welcome to iRun’s newest blog “What’s Cooking iRun”. This is where we will share some of our readers favorite recipes and we encourage you to offer feedback and some of your own recipes.

This is our first recipe and we hope you give it a try and share it with others.

Here’s a recipe for granola that I make every week that I received
from my friend Megan, another runner. It’s a great breakfast fuel for
my husband and I before our long run on Sunday. We usually eat it
with our homemade yoghurt.

1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
3 cups large oats (not quick oats)
1/2 cup chopped or sliced almonds
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup mixed dried fruit – raisins, cranberries, apricots, apples etc.

Heat honey and oil over low heat until liquid (don’t boil). Remove
from heat and stir in vanilla. Stir in pecans and almonds. Add oats
and mix thoroughly. Spread on large baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes
at 350F. Stir every 5 minutes. After removing from oven, add dried
fruit. You can also add spices to the honey such as cinnamon, ginger
and/or nutmeg for a different flavour.



  1. oops, just noticed that it should really be 1/4 cup honey. I usually double the recipe and wrote the wrong amount for honey. Sorry 🙂
