Recipe: Alaska Airlines’ first class granola

Alaska Airlines first class granola.

Roasted sunflower seeds and dried cranberries give this simple granola a special twist.

“This granola remains one of our most popular first class offerings, and we are often asked for the recipe,” says Kirsten Robinett, Alaska Airlines’ onboard food and beverage services product manager.

Custom-designed by Alaska’s executive chef, this popular granola is served in first class on shorter flights, such as Seattle-San Francisco.


Makes approximately 13, 4-ounce servings

Rolled oats, 32 ounces
Brown sugar, 8 ounces
Butter, 6 ounces
Sliced almonds or pumpkin seeds, 3 ounces
Roasted sunflower seeds, 1 ounce
Dried cranberries, 3 ounces

Melt butter and add sugar on medium heat until sugar dissolves. Mix with oats. Spread on sheet pan and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Put baked oats in bowl and toss in nuts, seeds and cranberries.

Try serving with Greek yogurt and fresh blueberries.



  1. I had the first class granola for breakfast this morning. It is outstanding.I asked the flight attendant what brand it was but she didn’t know. This is real food – not candy. Thank you for posting the recipe.
