Cook's Hideout: Easy Granola (with Almonds)

Easy Granola (with Almonds)

Here's an easy peasy recipe to make Granola. I say easy because it requires a very few pantry ingredients that are mixed together and then baked off until golden. Recipe is from a cookbook that I recently bought, Clean Slate.

This cookbook emphasizes on eating clean, whole and unprocessed foods. Original recipe for this was made with rolled barley flakes and rolled spelt flakes. I went shopping looking for these ingredients but I couldn't find them, so I made the granola with them and with just rolled oats.

Granola is great to sprinkle on yogurt for breakfast or eat it as a quick snack any time of the day. It's simple with just few ingredients and tastes great.

  • 3cups Rolled Oats (can also use 1 cup each of rolled barley flakes or rolled spelt flakes along with 1cup rolled oats)
  • 1cup Sliced Almonds
  • 2tbsp Coconut Sugar (or light brown sugar)
  • ½tsp Coarse Salt
  • ⅓cup Maple Syrup
  • ⅓cup Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1tsp Vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. Transfer onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Bake, stirring halfway through, until golden brown, about 28~30 minutes.
  4. Let cool completely on the baking sheet. Transfer into an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
