Oh my, someone please take this granola away from me! This was my first try at homemade granola, and it came out so good that I can’t stop eating it. The crunch is incredible!
The recipe is originally from a Virginia inn, and was posted on Kath Eats Real Food. There are so many nutritious ingredients in the list. I used oats, almonds, buckwheat, sunflower seeds, canola oil, honey, cinnamon, vanilla, coconut, and dried cranberries. Don’t be intimidated by this list though – I found just about everything I needed in the bulk bin at Whole Foods.
I baked the granola on a cookie sheet, so it browned a little more quickly. It doesn’t clump together as much as other granola, but that’s fine by me. I enjoy it with milk or yogurt, and I used it for another special recipe which I’ll post tomorrow.
