Hi, I was thinking of making some granola and was wondering if anyone could share their favorite mixes/recipes. I don't love a ton of nuts in granola, but will tolerate some. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
Most granola is a fancy twist on toasted oats—consider that when contemplating the exorbitant prices retailers charge for it. The thing is, granola is incredibly easy to make at home, and for a fraction of the cost. This recipe is a granola base to which you can add whatever dried fruit, nuts, or other tasty bits make you happy. Feel free to tweak this with other spices, a little less honey, more salt—it’s quite forgiving, and customizing your own blend is the fun of making your own. If you want to experiment even further, try using other rolled grains such as spelt or barley and wheat instead of oats.
We change up the traditional oat and nut combo with big flakes of fragrant, crispy coconut and starchy, nutty buckwheat groats. It’s amazing how little oil and sweetener you need to get beautifully browned granola.
This clean eating granola is naturally sweetened with a touch of honey and fresh orange juice. With bold flavor from a variety of chopped nuts, vanilla extract, and cinnamon, we kept this big batch recipe simple so you can add any stir-ins you prefer
