Homemade Almond Granola
Homemade Almond Granola turned out wonderful. This was my first time making granola and it’s a whole lot easier than I thought. The recipe makes about 8 cups granola which is perfect for breakfast, to snack on throughout the day or add a handful to yogurt. Here are a few recipes to make using granola. Caramel Granola Puffcorn is one of our favorites. You can use any granola you like to make caramel granola puffcorn. Another recipe we really love is for Apple Pie with Oatmeal Granola Crumble Topping or Make Your Own Bear Naked Granola.
Granola [gruh-NOH-luh] is a breakfast food consisting of various combinations of grains (mainly oats), nuts and dried fruits. Granola is often toasted with oil and honey, giving it a crisp texture and sweet glaze. Muesli and granola have become popular breakfast cereals. The German word muesli means mixture. Both muesli & granola can include raw or toasted cereals such as oats, wheat, millet and barley. Dried fruits such as raisins, dried apricots, cranberries or cherries can be added and nuts, bran, wheat germ and coconut are also popular. Ground cinnamon is often added also.
Super easy to make and delicious to eat.
