Granola, a nutty, crunchy, sweet addition to any yogurt parfait or ice cream! You could even simply just pour some milk over it and have it for breakfast! Here’s a really easy recipe to avoid the expensive supermarket granola. It’s totally customizable too!
- 3 cups of large flake oats
- 1 cup of almond and pecan mix
- 1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup fire red raisins
- 1/4 cup of agave syrup
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit.
I roughly chopped my almonds and hand broke the pecan halves (it gives it a more rustic feel). In a large bowl put all of your dry ingredients in (oats, nuts, coconut, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon) mix well. In a smaller bowl mix your agave syrup, honey and butter together until its smooth.
Pour your wet honey mixture into your dry ingredients and mix well. On a lined sheet pan spread the mixture evenly and bake for 40 minutes, stirring the mixture around every 10 minutes. You want it to have even caramelization so don’t be too lazy with the mixing intervals!
When things start to firm up, you may have to put on some gloves and break it up with your fingers if you want a finer granola. At this point add in your raisins and put it in the oven for another 5 minutes.
Now you’re done! A really simple recipe you can’t mess up! Put it in a air tight container and it should keep for at least a few weeks!
This recipe is fully customizable like most granolas. Just add what you prefer, any nuts will do, the raisins could be replaced with any dried fruit. Toss in some dark chocolate chips at the end if you’re feeling fancy!
I hope you guys like the recipe!
