Naturally sweet honey, nuts, almond extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and oatmeal! Oh my! This granola rocks. You know what I’m eating this weekend on my fruit, with almond milk, and on Greek yogurt, pancakes – whatever! Mix, bake and eat. Repeat 🙂
You’ll need raw almonds, unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts, and unsalted mixed nuts. I found these in the bulk bins at our local Wegman’s grocery store.
Mix all the nuts, salt and oats together in a large bowl.
Measure 1/2 cup honey in a large measuring cup.
Stir in canola oil, almond extract, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Add some of the oat mixture into the honey and stir until blended. Keep adding more oats to the honey mixture until the measuring cup is full. Add the honey-oat mixture to the large bowl with the remaining oats and stir until coated and evenly distributed.
Pour the granola onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Allow the granola to cool and store in an airtight container.
Serve with milk or as a topping on yogurt or fruit.
I think I’ll sprinkle on a little unsweetened coconut on the next bowl.
(adapted from a recipe in a Prevention Cookbook)
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
1/2 cup unsalted mixed nuts
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon almond extract
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix the oats, salt and nuts together in a large mixing bowl. Combine the honey and canola oil in a large measuring cup. Stir in the almond extract, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add some of the oat mixture into the honey mixture and stir until well combined. Add more oats to the honey mixture until the measuring cup is full and all nuts are well coated. Add the honey-coated oat mixture into the large mixing bowl and combine with the remaining oats.
Pour the mixture onto a parchment lined large baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes at 300 degrees stirring every 5 minutes. Allow mixture to cool before serving.
I’m looking forward to a weekend at home and plan to do a little baking. I’m also excited about the next pie which has a camping theme to go along with our new camper. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and please stop by on Monday for a new and exciting pie recipe! Thanks so much for stopping by.
