I’ve always been a granola fan, but since it’s a little pricey at the grocery store I don’t buy it too often. My favorite ways to eat granola is mixed in with a dairy-free yogurt, with cold almond milk poured over the top, or just munching on a handful of the good stuff.
Tonight I made a batch of homemade granola and it was so easy, so easy in fact that I wish I had an easy button to press when I finished [thanks to all those Staples commercials ;)]. It took about 20 minutes from start to finish and that includes bake time.
2 cups rolled oats
4 tbsp agave or honey
2 tbsp ground flax-seed
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla
Mix all of the ingredients together. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes. When the granola is done it will be a golden brown color, you will also notice that it is a little chewy, as it cools it gets some crunch. Store in an air tight container or bag and enjoy!
