Cook's Hideout: Toasted Millet & Oats Granola

Toasted Millet & Oats Granola

Bake-a-thon 2015: Day 3
Bake of the Day: Toasted Millet & Oats Granola
Today I have a simple and easy to make granola recipe with millet, rolled oats, coconut and pistachios. Recipe is from Everyday Food by Martha Stewart. This recipe has been on my to-make list for a while now and I'm glad I can finally strike it off from the list.
Oats & Millet Granola
This granola is crunchy with the toasted millet and chewy with the coconut flakes and dried cranberries. I like to eat it over some Greek yogurt for breakfast. Soaking it in almond milk makes it a little soft and easier to eat.

It is a great edible gift for the holidays too. Swap out the honey in the recipe with maple syrup and you have a delicious granola even vegans can enjoy.
