Homemade granola is kind of the best.
For one, it takes 30 minutes from start to finish and it is SO simple. My favorite time to whip up a batch of homemade granola is on a Saturday or Sunday morning, coffee in hand, as I mill around the kitchen and plan for the weekend. It’s not a committed process, so you can chill, and it fills the kitchen with the aromas of cinnamon and roasted nuts! Stop wasting money on scented candles, friends–make homemade granola instead…
Another selling point? You have total control over your ingredients while deciding which nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and natural sweeteners to use. Switching it up from time to time and using different combinations of fruits and nuts allows for variety, so you don’t have to have the same old granola every time.
In this recipe, I opted for chopped walnuts, some leftover slivered almonds I had kicking around, pepitas, golden raisins, and honey. You’ll get about 6 cups of granola out of this recipe–so find yourself a nice jar or sealable bin and keep it on the counter for easy munching access! Because trust me, you’ll be munching on this regularly.
It’s great on it’s own, sprinkled over yogurt, or over a smoothie bowl!
