This is still our family’s favorite granola recipe, and I usually make a batch every other week or so. I’ve been making this same recipe for five years now, and we love it!
- 6 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup nuts (we almost always use almonds, because they’re the cheapest)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 cup melted liquids* (see below)
*For the liquid part of the recipe, use any two of the following:
- Melted butter
- Coconut oil
- Maple syrup
- Peanut butter
I usually do about half and half, and it truly is whatever we have at the moment. Butter and honey is my go-to combination, but the others are also tasty, and each ones gives a slightly different variation on the flavor.
We love this granola and have it with yogurt for breakfast once a week, plus for snacks. One of my recent favorite ways to eat it is with a handful of craisins and some milk, like cereal. I think it tastes like Kashi GoLean Berry Crunch, one of my favorite kinds of cereal! Only, you know, much cheaper…
How do you eat your granola? With yogurt? Like cereal? Or all on its own?
