Granola had been on my list to make for ever. I don’t know why it took so long for me to try it. Especially since I have made Homemade cereal bars before which has been a big hit in my house. Granola is actually much easier to make since you don’t need to chop the nuts and you don’t need to follow an exact recipe since binding is not important here.
I thought of finally making granola this past weekend since I had just toasted pumpkin seeds and wanted to use them in a granola. Not that they needed to be ‘used’ – they were going pretty fast so I had to save some actually 🙂 So I looked at a few recipes and then just decided to throw some things that I had in my pantry together. And of course it had to be sugar free. So I used a combination of maple syrup and honey for sweetness. Almonds, pumpkin seeds and raisins went in to give company to the oats and all of them toasted well to form this healthy and tasty granola.! Trust me, so much tastier than any store bought granola! I have been eating it this entire week for afternoon snack along with some goat kefir that I recently bought from Whole Foods. So Yum!
Linking this healthy and tasty granola recipe to Throwback Thursday this week.
