I made homemade yogurt last week and it was delicious. It was so delicious that my son had three bowls full and we used the entire quart in one day. I decided after making a bigger batch of yogurt that I needed to have some granola to go with it.
As I was standing in Wal-Mart looking at a package of organic granola that cost over $4, I thought to myself…this is stupid – if you can make yogurt you can make granola. And so I did.
It is so easy and so yummy!
4 cups of old fashioned oats
1 cup of raisins or a dried fruit of your choice
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 slivered almonds
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of honey
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix 4 cups of oats, 1 cup of dried fruit, 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds, 1/2 slivered almonds together in a mixing bowl.
On your stovetop on low heat melt 1 stick of butter with 1/2 cup of honey. Once it’s melted pour it in with oat mixture and stir it altogether. Lay aluminum foil out on baking tray and spread granola evenly over it.
Bake granola at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes take it out and stir it and put it back in for up to another 5 minutes if needed. Watch closely though because it may burn if you leave it the entire extra 5 minutes.
There you have it! Homemade granola for your homemade yogurt. I love this kind of stuff and I am so excited to try and get my boys to eat better with these new skills I am learning.
