So, you might think that this post will have a recipe for the best granola . . . ever. But I'm actually on the search for the best homemade granola recipe! I've never actually made granola (until today) but I LOVE it - it's my cereal of choice. But it's so expensive and some of the ones at the store aren't that tasty. Which is why I am on the search for the best homemade recipe!
I started with my first recipe today. You can see the recipes I'm trying on my Pinterest board, On the search for the best granola recipe . . .
Today, I'm starting with this crunchy granola recipe (made with less oil, which is why I picked it), found over at Family Fun. I'll let you know what I think! It's in the oven baking as we speak.
I tweaked it a little, using milled flaxseed instead of wheat germ, adding some coconut, replacing the sesame seeds with sunflower seeds and using almonds and cashews for the nuts. And since I want it a little chewy, I may only bake it for 30 minutes instead of 40.
If you have a favorite granola recipe, please share!!! I'd love to add it to my Pinterest board.
I hope you are all having fun, baking away and spending time with your families. I truly love this time of the year!
