Perfect Homemade Granola
If you prefer some other dried fruit, such as cranberries, you can add them to this mix.
Baking the oatmeal may seem to be a lot of fuss. But once it comes out of the oven, you will not be sorry you waited.
For the best granola you've ever tasted, think outside the box. This do-it-yourself mix can be tailored with whatever nuts, seeds, and dried fruit sound good to you. Start with our three delicious blends, each with its own winning texture and taste.
Honey-Peanut Granola with Coconut and Dried Cherries
This quick and easy homemade granola is a like a good bag of trail mix—but even better! Salty peanuts, dried cherries, and fat flakes of toasted coconut make up the mix-ins, while an egg white is added before baking to keep this batch full of snackable clusters. Lastly, a combination of olive oil, honey, and brown sugar infuses every cholesterol-busting oat with a wholesome sweetness.
Use this homemade granola as a topping for yogurt, enjoy it as a cereal with milk, or simply snack as is. It's easy to make and is more economical than store-bought.
Homemade granola is a nourishing breakfast. Use olive oil, which has many healthfulproperties, and pure maple syrup to bind rolled oats, raisins, and nuts before baking them.
Serve this homemade granola on plain yogurt with fresh fruit for a sweet, healthy breakfast.
