Granola.

30 May

I love granola.  It is darn expensive to buy.  So, I went the homemade route.  And I don’t think I’ll be buying granola anytime soon.  It was incredibly easy, and I had all the ingredients in my pantry.  I used this recipe from the Baked: New Frontiers in Baking cookbook. The nuts and berries are all the extras…you can just use what you’ve got! This recipe has lots of good ideas for what you can add.

Some things I learned while making this granola…

  • The granola isn’t going to be crunchy when you take it out of the oven.  I kept adding two more minutes because I thought it would harden.  Nope!  It won’t do that until you take it out and let it cool.
  • I didn’t do it on purpose, but it ended up working well.  If you want big chunks of granola, don’t spread it too thin in the pan.  Make more of a ‘sheet’ of granola.  Then, once it has cooled, you can break it up into chunks as big (or small!) as you’d like!
