Granola

Updated: Mar 25

I love granola. Love love love. As a standalone snack. Grabbing a mouthful on the way past the pantry. As a yogurt topper. Thanks for my friend Amanda, I recorded more of these recipes to share.


General Directions

While the ingredients change the process remains the same. Keep the oven temperature low to avoid burning the oats, mixing the oats at least every 10 minutes. For a crunchier granola leave it the oven as the oven cools; this will dry it out just a little bit more.


In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients (oats, nuts, seeds, etc). In a small bowl mix together salt and spices. Combine dry ingredients with spices.


Next mix together the we ingredients (i.e., oil, maple syrup, nut butter, molasses, etc.) Use a spatula combine the wet and dry ingredients.


Spread mixture evenly on a baking sheet. I spread a thin layer of coconut oil on the baking sheet but you can also use silicon baking sheets or parchment paper.


Put in the oven. Every 10 minutes you should mix the granola up. Depending on your oven this may take less than 45 minutes, once it smells fragrant and the edges start to brown it is probably done.
