The Best Homemade Granola Ever!!

We have all been there. The party starts at 1:00, but the food won’t be ready until 6:00. So what do you do? Have a bowl of this hearty granola on hand of course! By combining almonds and oats with the bold flavors of cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg and honey; this little snack is sure to calm the mid-day hunger pains of your guests. Also a perfect little treat while tailgating for your favorite fireworks display.

Let’s Dig In!         

The Best Homemade Granola Ever!!

You will need the following ingredients:

4 cups old-fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups whole raw almonds

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt (use it all!)

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

1/4 cup veggie oil

1/4 cup honey, preferably acacia

1 teaspoon vanilla

Let’s get to cookin’:

Step 1: Mix the first 6 ingredients on the list together. A large stainless steel bowl works great for this.

Step 2: In a sauce pan melt oil, honey, and vanilla together. We just want to warm them up here, because they tend to not combine. Pour your liquid mixture over your oat mixture until completely saturated.

Step3: Place your mix on a sheet pan and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to ensure even baking.

Granola is done when toasty and golden in color. Storing in these reusable zip top bags allows for maximum shelf life and makes travel a breeze!
