Homemade Honey Granola

I know this might not go on some of your guys’ list of healthy foods but for this household it does. It’s what I would consider a ‘clean’ breakfast. Yes it’s sweetened with honey and has dried fruit  so it’s not ‘sugar free’, but natural sugars like honey and fruits are acceptable in my household. The only ingredients are steel cut oats, dried fruit and honey. So I guess it’s gluten free too. I plan on putting it on yogurt, hot oatmeal (for crunch), as a topping on applesauce, makes a great shortcut for fruit cobbler, eat as cereal and also munching on it as a snack on the tram. For 9zl for a huge bag of muesli I would consider this a great deal. Buying granola is so expensive and if I can make it to my liking and for cheaper then you bet I’ll make it! Besides, it’s fun.

I honestly just emptied a bag of muesli into a mixing bowl and poured in a small jar of honey. I promise I’ll do better with marking down the amounts in the next recipe. 🙂 My mom taught me how to cook baste of how things feel in the bowls while mixing.  ( too dry, too thick, looking for the right weight when stirring, etc)

I baked it at 170’C (350’F) for roughly 20 min then took it out, mixed it so it would cook evenly and put it in again for roughly 20 min. I let it cool so it would get hard then I broke it up with a knife. It got any aggression out of my system. 😉 I made it without any spices because, honestly, my family like plain things. BORING I know. Some pumpkin spice or heck even some cinnamon would be great on granola. Enjoy!
