Homemade Granola with Raisins

Granola + yogurt = match made in heaven. Really.

Here's a simple way to make granola yourself. We love it. Feel free to pile it high on a big bowl of homemade yogurt :o)

Here's what you'll need:

4 cups rolled oats
3/4 c oat bran
1/2 c chopped almonds
1/2 c chopped pecans
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1 tsp salt
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c maple syrup
1/4 c honey
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c raisins

What to do:

1) Preheat the oven to 325. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2) Combine oats, bran, and nuts in large bowl.

3) Stir together salt, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, and vanilla in a saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat, then pour over oat mixture and stir to coat.

4) Spread the mixture evenly over the baking sheet and bake until toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through.

5) Cool, then stir in raisins and store in airtight container.

  1. Do you use your crock pot to make your yogurt? The granola looks yummy!

  2. Shelly, I haven't. I do it in a big stainless steel soup pot :o) I was planning a post about making yogurt, though, so check back again and I'll have more details!

    And the granola IS yummy! Thanks!

  3. Can you make it without brown sugar? or white sugar? just honey and maple syrup?

  4. Oh, Ariana, I've wondered the same thing, but I haven't tried it! I've justified it by saying there's "only" 1/4 cup in the whole batch :P I just need to get brave and try making it without. We don't consume much sugar, but we have been allowing a little in moderation, unless we are on our quarterly four week cleanse.
