Crunchy Granola

01.04.08 | crunchy granola

A couple weeks ago I read over Sarah’s recipe for granola. (Actually it’s her mom’s.) I couldn’t wait to try it, and today I finally got around to making a batch. I used walnuts, dried cranberries, and flax seed in my version. I omitted the sesame seeds, wheat germ, and wheat bran. I have to admit that it came out really good! Next time I might use maple syrup instead of honey. I’m looking forward to experimenting with different fruit & nut combinations. Since yogurt and granola is a breakfast staple (I eat it just about every other day), I think this will be a fun addition to my culinary repertoire. (Not to mention that it’s so much cheaper than store-bought!)

  1. I might add chocolate chips to mine. Oops, wait a minute ~ that would make it unhealthy, right? LOL! 🙂

    The kids LOVE yogurt. Maybe I should make some granola for them. I would love to make my own granola bars.

  2. Looks good and sounds great for you! Double bonus!

  3. I’m so glad that you loved it! We make it all the time . . . my husband is somewhat addicted.

    If you try it with maple syrup, let me know how it goes!

    Best,
    Sarah
