Homemade Granola Recipe

I have been asked about this recipe several times and today I decided to share it! I was never a big granola fan until I was pregnant with V and suddenly it was one of my favorite foods. I love putting it on yogurt with fruit, I love making trail mix out of it. And my kids like eating it by its self. It's a healthier option for meals and snacking than regular cereal or candy so it's easy to feel good about eating it. So this is my homemade granola recipe!



What you will need:

5 cups of old fashioned oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbs PB fit powder (you can sub this with regular peanut or almond butter if you'd rather)
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup honey
1 egg white



Pre-heat oven to 300. Mix all your dry ingredients together until the oats are coated.  Melt the butter and add the honey and, if you're subbing the PBfit out, mix the regular nut butter in. Whisk in the egg yolk. Pour the mixture in with the dry ingredients and stir until the oats are all coated. spread onto a cookie sheet. (For easy cleanup, line the cookie sheet with aluminum foil) Bake for 30 minutes. Let the granola cool completely before putting it into a container.



I store it in a glass jar similar to THIS ONE to keep it fresh and it lasts about 2 weeks to a month before it's gone. I've never had it around long enough for it to go bad, so I'm not sure how long it would last for. Like I said before, I love to eat this on yogurt with fruit, but I also love to add seeds and chocolate chips or crasins to it once in a while.

Do you guys have a go-to or favorite recipe?

What is your favorite add-in for trail mix or granola?

  5. i go back and forth with granola, but I love to add in nuts and dried fruit, too. Homemade is quite delicious, but we don't eat it enough to make it worth the effort, so I just buy it for when we want it. Right now, I have a bag of peanut butter granola just sitting there, waiting for someone to chow down.
