Granola

We’ve tried many granola recipes over the years, and it seems we’ve finally found one everyone likes.  It’s not the healthiest it COULD be, but there’s plenty of ways we can improve on it over time. 🙂  Here’s the recipe:

8c (768g) organic rolled oats

1-1/3 (298g) organic evaporated cane juice + 1-1/3T sorghum (this is what we use in place of brown sugar)

2T maple sugar

2c (1 pound) room temp  butter

1-1/2c crushed honey roasted peanuts -OR- 1-1/2c unsweetened coconut flakes

We mix everything together in our heavy duty stand mixer.  Spread evenly onto 2 cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake about 24 minutes at 350°.

Cool, crumble, and store.  🙂

In the future, perhaps we can soak the oats first, use less sweetener, and soak/roast the nuts… Gotta have something to work towards, right? 🙂
