So…I may or not be eating a bowl of granola like it’s a bag of chips right now.
I made this recipe about a week ago to jazz up my excessive yogurt eating. It has a nice combo of chunks, crunch, and sweetness. Be careful when you’re baking it though because it can easily burn. Believe me. I found this out the hard way when I tried making granola the first time.
I present to you my second, more successful attempt at granola creation:
Nut & Seed Granola makes for a sweet and healthy topping for yogurt. It's packed full of healthy fats and protein.
- 1/4 c peanut butter
- 1/3 c honey
- 1 tbs canola oil
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 c wheat germ
- 1/4 c chia seeds
- 1/4 c flax seeds
- 1/3 c almonds, chopped
- 2 c oats
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees and spray large baking sheet with non-stick spray.
- Combine peanut butter, honey, and vanilla in bowl and microwave 30 seconds. Mix well.
- In separate bowl, stir together wheat germ, chia seeds, flax seeds, almonds, and oats.
- Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and thoroughly mix until evenly coated.
- Bake for 7 minutes. Stir gently (to not break up chunks) and bake for 7 more minutes.
You could really use any combo of nuts and seeds you want. These are the types I had on hand though. The recipe makes for a pretty good base for granola. Try it out and let me know how it goes!
Warning: the recipe makes a lot!
