Ever had that problem on a Monday morning!!!! “I need to get back into healthy mode after the weekend!!!” Last night I decided to bake homemade granola. My husband asked me….. “Why?? When we can buy it?” I don’t know about you, but I am constantly having that problem of finding a granola, that’s healthy and not too sweet and not too much oil. I have tried so many brands and still not found the right one for me.
So I finally tried to bake my own….. and OMG it’s amazing!! I just grabbed all the things I love, from my kitchen cabinets. To me granola is like making your own cocktail 😋 minus the alcohol. In this recipe I don’t use any sugar. has less sugar. Instead I use honey or maple syrup, and raisins or cranberries to naturally sweeten it. Depending on how crumbly or chunky you want your granola; will determine the quantity of olive oil. I don’t use too much just enough to give my granola a golden colour and help bind it a little.
Kid friendly! You can add whatever your little one can eat. Mine is less than 1 Years so no honey, salt or nuts for him! So I just add raisins and a touch of maple syrup to his. I love it, we can enjoy the same breakfast together 😍
