I've made granola few times now, and the uncooked mix of oats honey etc. always tastes a lot sweeter than the final baked product. I think that the honey is making everything crispier, but where is all that sweetness going?
(Most recent recipe I used was http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.co...)
I try to eat super healthy, and it's got me thinking that maybe I shouldn't be adding sugar to the pre-baked oat mix at all (since I can't really taste the sweetness anyway). Does this make any sense?
Another way to put this question: when I take 1/2 oats and a tbs honey, it will taste much sweeter when I cook it normally in a pot with water than when I bake it into granola. Why is this????
