Ultimate Irresistible Granola Recipe
This is THE BEST granola out there. Walnuts, pecans, coconut, sesame seeds and honey are just a few of the delectable ingredients that make this the most delicious and nutty granola out there, you won't be disappointed!
First of all, THANK YOU Veronica for this amazing recipe. I just made a 10x recipe and am giving it away as Christmas gifts. I have a few comments that may be of interest to others. (#1) as others have noted this is a forgiving recipe and you can tweak as desired. Personally I like it with an additional 1c oats, and only 1/2 cup of sesame seeds and 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds, and add 1/4 tsp salt. (#2) You can be make this into bars or very clumpy granola as follows. Bake the granola in a jelly roll or half sheet rimmed pan. After mixing in the dried fruit, cover with a clean kitchen towel and press down hard to flatten into bars. Once completely cool, you can then break into bars or crumple into chunky granola. Great for snacks. (#3) for a different taste this can be baked for up to 45 minutes. Be very sure to stir often after 20 minutes so it won't burn, but you will end up with a rich golden brown granola that is quite crisp. The recipe as written produces an excellent chewy granola...if you want it crisp
This is my favorite granola recipe! Keep in mind it has more fat and calories than a Big Mac though! :)
So yummy - dangerously so! It makes a LOT, so you could halve the recipe and it would be fresh every time you eat it. I found it hard to fit it all on my baking sheets. I had to do it in batches.
I LOVE IT! It's so yummy! I did do a bit of a change though. I only added 2 cups of the slivered almonds instead of all the other nuts to cut out on fat. I also sprinkled about 2 tbs of cinnamon in my dry mixture. I also added quite a bit of vanilla to my oil and honey mixture because I love the taste of it so I didn't even measure it, just started pouring. I added extra cranberries and raisins to make up for the other ingredients as well. I know it might sound a bit bland but we didn't need the extra fat in our granola cereal because my husband is a cereal fanatic he can eat cereal 3 times a day bowl fulls at a time. So I wanted a healthier version of the cereal so you didn't feel as though you were eating healthy when you really weren't. I notice a lot of viewers just take their granola as a snack, mine didn't bunch up to much it's more like a cereal then it is clusters, so I just had my first bowl with some milk and it's quite tasty, also I feel kinda full...although it could be from grazing from t
I made this last night and was very impressed! I've tried several granola recipes and this is the first one that actually worked like I wanted it too. I did change a few things- I omitted the sesame and sunflower seeds and wheat germ. I used flax seed instead of wheat germ. I used extra virgin coconut oil instead of canola- for a more healthy approach. I also used 1 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of Agave nectar. I added a few dashes of salt and cinnamon. I also had to double the cooking time- I had two cookie sheets in the oven. It just wasn't cooking very quickly. Just wait until it gets golden and toasty. Great recipe and VERY easy! Thank you!!
You'd be surprised how little sugar goes into making this cocoa-licious chocolate granola that tastes like candy but is better for you than most granolas.
A mix of oats, almonds, puffed quinoa, and chia seeds sweetened with brown sugar and honey makes for perfectly crunchy homemade granola.
This granola is not just for breakfast, it'll also satisfy any sweet tooth; with coconut, macadamia nuts, and raisins, it tastes like dessert.
Maple-flavored granola with nuts, seeds, and dried fruit makes a great snack or breakfast treat.
