Agave Granola

DSCN2320It’s easier than you think to make homemade granola.  Once you make it the first time you start to wonder why you were paying for it before.  This is a great recipe because you can adjust it to whatever you’ve got on hand; nuts, dried fruit, etc.  The flax adds some healthy fat and fiber, which I like.  You could always sub out honey for the agave nectar.

  • 2 c rolled oats
  • 1 c nuts/seeds (I used walnuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds)
  • 1/4 c ground flax
  • 1/4 c oil (I used canola)
  • 1/4 c agave syrup
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 c flake cereal (I used corn flakes)

Preheat oven to 300.

In a large bowl mix together all ingredients except agave, oil, and vanilla.  In a separate container mix together the wet ingredients (If you add the oil first it prevents the agave from sticking to the measuring cup).  Add the liquids to the dry ingredients a little at a time, stirring after each addition.

Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet and put in the oven for 30 minutes, taking out to stir every 10 minutes.  You can tell when it is done by tasting an oat-they should be crisp, and taste like you want to eat them 🙂
