Homemade Granola: A Guide

If you’ve never made your own granola, you should! It’s so easy! Granola gets a bad wrap sometimes for being full of sugar and high in calories. But if you’re making it from scratch, you can control what goes in and what stays out. I like mine made with honey or maple syrup for example rather than sugar. And I load it up with high-fiber, whole-grains and it makes a filling snack or breakfast that will give you lots of sustainable energy.

I’ve created a quick guide below to print out or save and refrence when you’re making granola. You can mix and match ingredients and create endless combinations. I bought a giant mason jar to store mine, and this recipe will fill that and depending on how much additional ingredients you use, maybe more, so keep that in mind. And my ‘tip’ for making this is the parchment lined baking sheet: once the granola has cooled, it’s easy to fold up and funnel the granola into the jar will little mess!
