Granola sounds healthy. But sometimes, it's not. In fact, some store bought granola products can cost you around 600 calories per cup! Not to mention that small amounts of pre-made granola can be quite costly.
Instead, try making your own. Feel free to sprinkle it on yogurt, frozen yogurt, cereal, pudding, and ice cream!
- 1 cup Dried Muesli (If you can't find Muesli, feel free to buy dried oatmeal, and just add in 1 tablespoon of raisins, if desired).
- 2 tablespoons Sliced Almonds (If you can't find sliced almonds, feel free to substitute whole almonds or any other nut)
- 1 tablespoon Light Brown Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Agave Nectar (I used honey-flavored Agave Nectar)
- Preheat the oven to 350.
- Combine dried Muesli (or oats), Sliced Almonds, and Light Brown Sugar in a bowl. Toss/mix until well mixed.
- Drizzle Agave Nectar on top. Use clean fingers to massage the Nectar into the mix, until the mixture begins to clump together. It should be a crumbly mixture.
- Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper, then spray with Canola Oil (or any oil spray).
- Drop the crumbly mixture onto the foil/parchment paper and spread out so that it forms one layer.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the granola begins to harden.
- Let the granola cool and dry for at least 30 minutes. Then, use with your recipes!
