Maple Almond Granola

Have you ever made your own homemade granola?

I make a MASSIVE sheet tray filled to the brim, but you don’t have to be excessive like me. I am of the school – why do four trips in with grocery bags when you can do it all in one? That’s my motto with baking too. Make it all! No seriously, this recipe below is a single batch, you can definitely double if you wish! TIP #2: You might want to bake it in sections, if you have the time. I did it all in one pan, but it took a little longer.

Hope you enjoy your own granola, think of the oats as the blank canvas. Add whatever you wish!

ADD IN OPTIONS: **I ADD THE FRUIT IN THE LAST 5 MINS OF BAKING, OR EVEN ONCE I TAKE IT OUT. TOSS WITH FRUIT AND LET COOL!

  • raisins
  • dried cherries
  • dried apple
  • dried mango
  • coconut
  • flax seed
  • chia seed
  • pumpkin seeds
  • sunflower seeds
  • almonds- TIP #3: I used slivered over sliced. Sliced BURN quickly!
