It’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 🙂
