slivered almonds, toasted*
2 1/2 cups
almond or vegetable oil
This was incredible. After I baked it, I threw in a heaping half cup of organic raisins. The kids and I thought this was like eating oatmeal cookies in a bowl. VERY good.
Great recipe! I love granola and making it homemade is perfect when you need a healthy snack or something to perk up your yogurt or oatmeal in the morning. This has a really nice blend of flavors!
AMAZING recipe! I chose this because there's no sugar in it. So glad I did, my husbands a chef and now he's asking me to make this as our staple granola.
I have been making granola for the past few months, changing each time to find just the right one. I don't need to search any longer. I found it! This is fantastic. I did not have enough almonds so went with 1/2 cup of almonds and 1/2 cup of pecans. Also did not have almond oil so used grapeseed oil. It came out perfect. Thank you!
I love granola and this recipe is super simple and very yummy.
Quick update: I made a second batch of this with a couple of alterations. I added 1tsp pure Mexican vanilla and a beaten egg white. I poured my mixture onto a cookie sheet and pressed it down. Then I baked it uncovered for 12 minutes after that I covered it with foil, pressed it down again and baked another 15. The vanilla added nice flavor and the egg white helped the granola clump. A very good recipe I will be making regularly!
This is my first time making granola from scratch! This was very good! I love almonds. Different nuts would be good in this, pecans, walnuts, etc., or raisins. very good! be careful not burn this. I baked at 350 for 15 minutes, then lowered teh temperature to 325. keep an eye on it and mix frequently, every 10 minutes or so.
Easy starter recipe. It lacked some flavor so I added almost 1/4 c. light brown sugar and increased the cinnamon to 1 1/2 tsp. I also toasted both slivered almonds and coconut and increased the oats to 3 c. I used a bit less than 1/4 c. oil and mixed in some golden raisins the last 5 mins of cooking and mine was done in 25 mins. I stirred it every 10 mins. Very good basic and easy granola recipe I will make again. Great in yogurt, oatmeal and cereal...and just eating out of hand!!
Good base recipe. I added about 3 T of brown sugar, some vanilla, and about 1/4 tsp of salt before baking. When it was done in the oven, I added some raisins and dried cranberries. I did have a problem with the baking time. It was WAY TOO LONG. I had mine in for about 17 minutes and I still questioned whether it was a little overdone.
