I LOVE granola. I use it as a dessert topper, a snack, breakfast, over yogurt... you name it! It adds sweetness and crunch. What could be better? However, I find that store bought granola is pretty expensive and often filled with extra sugars or ingredients that make it less healthy. So -- Why not make my own? It's SUPER easy and you can customize your granola to your liking. I love simple recipes and I'm not a huge fan of overly sweet foods, so, now my granola fits my tastes. This recipe reflects my preferences, but feel free to mix it up yourself! My healthy granola lasts a little over a week and I use it in some way every day (great for breakfasts at home or brought to work!) Cheers.
Pre-heat the oven to 300 degrees. Cover a baking tin with foil to prevent your granola from sticking to the surface.
In a medium to large bowl add all of your ingredients together and mix them up so that all the ingredients are fully incorporated and blended. This is important because you want your granola to have consistent flavor (not some pieces being too sweet and others less so).
Gently spread your granola mixture on your baking tin so that it forms a thin, equal, layer spanning the entire surface of the tin. Put it in the oven for 8 minutes. (Prepare for your kitchen to smell amazing)
Take your granola out and gently shake the tin to move the granola around slightly. If you're satisfied with the crunch of the granola take it out and let it cool. If not, put it in the oven for 2 more minutes and take it out to cool.
As the granola is cooling, lightly drizzle some extra agave over the top to create "granola clusters". You may forgo this step if you don't want clusters or prefer an unsweetened granola.
Use a spatula or large wooden spoon to transfer your granola off of the tin. Store your granola in a tupperware or mason jar and enjoy it as you wish!
