A super simple recipe today! Thanks for reading!
A few years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to this heavenly thing called Granola… Sprinkle it on some yogurt, and you’ve got yourself a hearty breakfast or a savory snack. I used to just buy granola from the store, usually in bulk as I tend to devour it by the pounds.
But now…I have discovered homemade granola, and it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than store bought ones, and so much healthier too! My life is now complete. And I am sure yours will be too if you give this recipe a try! Just do it.
Here is what you will need:
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/4 cups nuts ( peanuts, cashews, pine nuts, walnuts, etc.)
2-3 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
2-3 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 cup dried fruit (dried pineapples, mangoes, cranberries, banana chips, apricots, etc)
- Preheat oven to 350-365 F
- Mix the oats and nuts in a bowl
- In a separate bowl mix the oil and the honey. Whisk briskly until oil and honey become a golden sticky syrup.
- Pour the syrupy mixture onto the oats/nuts mixture and stir well until all the oats and nuts are coated.
- Place mixture on a foil-lined cookie sheet and spread out flat and even.
- Place pan in oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Stirring the granola every 10 minutes or so.
- Remove from the oven, transfer the granola on to a new baking sheet to cool
- When cool add the fruit and toss until combined. Store in a clean, dry, and airtight container or a ziplock bag.
