Chopped pecans and cashews
Using a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Slowly heat the wet ingredients together in a pot on the stove (or in the microwave) until warm. Pour the warm, wet mixture into the dry bowl, stirring until blended well. Spread the granola evenly on two parchment-lined sheet pans. Roast at 350°F (175°C) for 12 – 15 minutes. While it’s baking, toss the granola on the sheet pans once or twice. Your granola should look and smell toasted but be careful not to burn the edges.
Serve with your favorite type of milk or yogurt. In our family, we love to top our granola with fresh berries or a warm pear sauce.
Other ingredients you can experiment with include:
- Dried cranberries
- Candied ginger
- Orange zest
- Chocolate chips (Wait until your granola has cooled completely before adding the chocolate.)
