Making granola isn’t rocket science. I generally don’t follow an exact recipe. You can have a more nutty based granola or mainly oats in your granola, it’s really up to you and what you like. Here is the basic design of making granola:
The base: oats, quinoa flakes, raw buckwheat, puffed rice or other rolled grain.
The sweetener & moisture: dates, raisins, honey, dried fruits, dried berries, vanilla, applesauce, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, melted nut butters or tahini.
The extras: nuts, seeds or coconut flakes (these will often contain your proteins and fats.)
Superfood boosts: cinnamon, ground flaxseeds, maca powder, bee pollen, lucuma powder, cacao powder, baobab powder, dried turmeric or whatever floats your boat.
Mix it all together with a pinch of salt and add a little water if needed.
Spread the mixture out on a lined baking sheet and bake on low for about 45 min, stirring occasionally to make sure the bottom doesn’t burn.
And there you have it…Granola!
Top over yogurt or acai, eat it plain or with milk, add to oatmeal or use as a topping for ice cream.
And that’s it! Isn’t this the shortest recipe blog post you’ve ever read?
