How many of you stuck at home during this quarantine have found yourself eating more than usual? Here’s a simple but delicious recipe for some homemade granola, perfect for topping some Greek yogurt for a healthy snack.
Did I say recipe? It’s more of an idea or guideline because you can make this a little bit different each time, based on what you have on hand as well as your own preferences. The mix in the picture includes the following:
- Slivered almonds
- Chia seeds
- Coconut flakes
- Some rolled oats
- A dash of cinnamon
I mixed all these together with some maple syrup (just enough to coat the mixture, if there’s too much it will pool on your cookie sheet and burn in the oven). Spread the mixture out on a cookie sheet (I sprayed mine with some cooking oil) and pop it in the oven at 325°F for 5-10 minutes, checking on it periodically to make sure it doesn’t burn. Once done, store in an airtight container for… I honestly don’t know how long, it generally doesn’t last longer than 4-5 days at our house (but I suppose it depends how big of a batch you make)! Sprinkle generously over your favorite yogurt (I like honey vanilla Greek yogurt) or oatmeal and enjoy!
