Healthy Homemade Granola Recipe, Oh sooo good!! This is a favorite in our house. My father is a Granola lover. When he smells this tasty recipe being made I know I’ll have a friend in the kitchen. It also makes a great gift with a little festive packaging. Oh, and did I mention, this Healthy Homemade Granola Recipe is a cinch to make. It’s a one bowl recipe and is a great dish to make with kids to help them learn to cook!
I have always had a love for granola. I can remember getting home from school and smelling the sweet warm vanilla wafting through the air. It was great as a snack or breakfast cereal and still is. Sometimes I will eat it as a dessert by sprinkling on some ice cream.
Besides the fact that this recipe is home made and full of love, I feel this granola is a little healthier as it has no processed sugar, only naturally occurring maple syrup.
Let’s get Cookin’
Bring out the Butter (butter makes everything better!). However, if you’re vegan, use 1 cup of coconut oil for very similar results.
Pour on the liquid magic.
Hey, this is easy! Time for the landslide of oats.
Work those arms and mix, mix, mix
Ahh, time for those wrinkled grapes. Our good friend, the risen. I soak them during the baking time so they’re nice and plump.
After baking for 20min make sure to stir your creation and then bake for an additional 20min.
Time to remove your raisins from their spa and add to the baked melody
Add in some fresh fruit if you like, and enjoy the perfect bite!
Warning! The next blog post is going to be cute, so stay tuned!
