Pantry was started when I combined my love of cooking with my love of creating handcrafted presents. By pulling ingredients from my kitchen pantry shelves, I was able to whip of natural personal + skin care products without nasty chemicals or additives.
The same can be said for this granola recipe, which I have dubbed “Everything in the Pantry” granola. Featuring 6 ingredients commonly used in our products, this granola is also extremely easy to make, affordable, and does not contain sugar, preservatives, or excess calories or fats, and costs 1/4 of the store-bought brands. You can add or omit any of the dry ingredients and I always go with what dried fruits and nuts I have in my pantry at the time.
Try it and tell me you don’t get addicted to it!
Pantry’s “Everything in the Pantry” Granola
3 cups Rolled Oats (we use gluten-free oats)
1 heaping cup Almonds, chopped
1 heaping cup Coconut, flaked unsweetened
1/4 cup Flax seeds, chia seeds, and/or hemp hearts
1 cup Pistachios (or swap for walnuts, pecan, pepitas, etc.)
2 tbsp Local Honey
2 tbsp real Maple syrup
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Sea Salt
3/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted
1/2 cup Golden raisins, dried cranberries, dried apricots, dates (optional)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Mix everything (except dried fruit) in a large bowl.
Spread mixture on large, lightly greased baking sheet in a thin layer.
Bake for 30 minutes. If adding dried fruit, stir them in + bake for another 15 minutes.
Let granola sit on the baking sheet for another 10-15 minutes so that clusters can form.
Serve with yogurt + berries, with milk, or just by the handful.

Bonjour! We’re beyond excited to say that we are in Paris this week. Shop owner Michelle decided to travel across the pond to celebrate her up coming birthday in the dreamy City of Lights. Baguettes, beingets, berets; they’re all in our immediate future, at least through Michelle’s travel pictures of course. Be sure to follow along over on our Instagram to see how Pantry in Paris unfolds.
Will we find the Moisturizing Facial Mist somewhere in the terminal after the long flight just ready to refresh our skin? Or how about the Dry Shampoo ready to give our hair a lift after a few days of unwashed travel? Perhaps we’ll come across the Air & Linen Spray ready to make the hostel smell a bit more like home. I definitely hope there’s something special saved for the Eiffel Tower. We’ll have to wait & see, but I know it will be a treat!
