Granola is always a nice option for a quick and easy breakfast. Especially for those mornings when you don’t have a lot of time or you are heading out the door to work. These healthy homemade granola recipes have few ingredients which is great because most conventional store brands have a ton of ingredients even some that are not all that healthy for us to be consuming.
The trick to baking granola is to cook it low and slow. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees and let it cook slowly over an hour. Set your timer for every 15-20 minutes and give it a stir. It will turn out golden brown and crispy this way. The cooking process does take a bit longer but the good news is the prep time is very minimal.
This tasty breakfast granola is one that you will keep coming back to. Simple, easy and delicious!!! Use gluten free oats for a gluten free option. Try it out. You won’t be disappointed.
