Granola 1.0

I finally got around to making my own Granola! SO much cheaper than buying it from the store + you know exactly what's in it :)

First, the recipe via Everyday Food (which I recommend to everyone! I've gotten the subscription for the last 4 years and cook from it nearly every night. Even lunch and breakfast!)

While I did like the general outcome, this is definitely a work in progress for me. The main thing I didn't like was the overall hint of Vegetable Oil flavor. I might shoot for a Sunflower Oil or something a little more delicate in taste next time :)

I'd love to know what you think! Or share your recipe if you already make your own!

Next on my conquer list, Oatmeal (which I'm enjoying a bowl of now, mmmmmm).

That looks delicious! I'm always looking for a good granola recipe, too! Thank you!

YUM. I love making granola too - so many delicious variations (I have to admit I put cocoa powder in mine a lot :)

And I frequently have it for supper too. Love breakfast for supper :)

Cocoa Powder... how interesting!

I'm so wanting to try this soon!
Perhaps add your favorite dried fruit to the mix...

I googled granola (or müsli as we call it) and some recipes were without added oil. Could be worth trying :)

I can make this, but it has to have NO SUGAR. Do you know the sugar content? If not, no worries! Looks fantabulous ! I will tell my Mother as well !

ThePeachTree said...

Oh, Minna, I forgot to mention that I had traded the chopped pecans for a raisin/dried cranberry mix :)

Ms. Chic - It's really only the sugar from the Maple Syrup! And any natural sugars from dried fruit should you choose to add those.

Have you tried the one on Eatsy, on Etsy?
That is the one I have used and it is really nice.

ThePeachTree said...

That's so silly that I hadn't looked there! Going now!

I just totally went in and signed up for Everyday Food. Please say nothing about jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, ok?
