Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
This recipe will be in a regular rotation because it's delicious! I added mini chocolate chips but next time will add the regular size. You can easily customize the recipe with flavors you like.
This is my family's favorite granola recipe. I cut the vanilla extract in half and add a teaspoon of almond extract.
Great starter recipe! I used brown sugar with stevia to reduce the calories, pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and added walnuts while leaving out the coconut ( I didn't have any!) DO use the cooler temps 275-320 as it will burn quickly . I also stirred it while it was cooling to reduce any sticking. Nice and crunchy!
Not sure if the honey (Manuka) I used was the culprit however, first round with oven at 350F granola was burnt in 15 minutes (it was stirred at 1st 10 minute mark). Second attempt adjusted oven temp to 320F and it came out perfect. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Will use again.
This is a great recipe. My husband isn't a granola eater and he eats this recipe like candy.
My oven is accurate.....the 350* temp is WAY TOO HOT for this!! It browned too soon....what a mess......if you make this, I would recommend baking only @ 275*
Hands down, the best granola I've ever had!
I added craisins and raisins after baking. Substituted pancake syrup for real maple, added 1/2 c. wheat bran and 1/3 c. ground flaxseed.
Add your dried fruit after the granola has baked & cooled off.
The only thing I changed was I added dried cranberries. I wouldn't do that again as they got really hard after baking it. Other than that, it was delish!
