This is an awesome and very basic granola recipe. It can be altered in any way you want.
For example: I once melted the honey down more so it was super runny which made it easier to mix into the granola.
I always use a little less oil so it’s less fatty, but you could use coconut oil which is much better for you.
Sometimes I have lots of dried fruit and nuts on hand other times I don’t. I double it a lot so it lasts longer. I also freeze the leftover grains so they stay fresh.
Some people prefer maple syrup or brown sugar to honey – feel free to make it your own.
And yes I was too lazy to take a picture of my own granola so I swiped this pic, but it looks basically the same.
By the way – thanks to my mom who gave me this recipe and made this for us a lot during our growing years. It is so much yummier than boxed cereal.
