I can’t tell you enough to encourage you to make these little gems. My kids and hubby are snacking on them for a couple of days now, they are really addicting. Today my husband texted me to hide those away from him, because simple he cannot stop 😋 😋
Kids wanted to help me in this post so they did almost everything. I wrote down the ingredients, they measured, started adding them together and did the video shooting, what a great team I am having 👍 . I was really proud of them, although I was a little skeptical as they might mess everything up, but I trusted them and they did everything , under my supervision of course, they were thrilled waiting for the result and so was I.
When everything was done they waited impatiently for the granola to cool down, it smelled heavenly good in the oven. They all gave it a thumbs up, it is sweet, nutty, chewy and so addicting. It is not your healthiest choice but at least it is homemade, so that is an advantage in itself.
I made these chewy, if you want them crunchy, you probably should put it back in the oven – after breaking them- for 15 minutes or so until they reach the crispiness you like.
Eat them with yogurt, add cold milk, pack in lunchboxes, snack on them or eat them as a dessert after dinner. In all cases, you’ll find them super delicious and great anytime of the day.
Enjoy your week end.
