Pinterest 365 – Day 23 – No-Stir Granola

We love granola in this house!  I must make a batch every week and I wanted to share this recipe with you from one of my favorite bloggers, The Frugal Girl.  She has a recipe that she’s used for ages called No-Stir Clumpalicious Granola.  Now, this is the first time in my life that I’ve made my own granola and her recipe is the only one I’ve ever used, so I’ve been confused by the ‘no-stir’ description.  There is quite a bit of stirring to mix everything together, but as I’ve researched other recipes I now understand that part of making granola means that you stir while it’s cooking not just to incorporate all the ingredients.  It all makes sense now!

So onto the recipe:  I made some modifications and added an ingredient :-).

Frugal Girl’s recipe calls for vegetable oil and I’m really into using coconut oil for all my baking, so I made that substitution.  No biggie.  I always use almonds if I have them, but there have been occasions when I have a lot of pecans, so this batch today is a combination of almonds and pecans.  Once again, no biggie.  My addition:  ground flax seeds.  I add about 1/4 cup for the omega-3 fatty acids.  Normally I would add the dried fruit, but I’m out at the moment and we’d rather have granola sans fruit than no granola.

This is magnificent with a bowl of Greek Honey Yogurt and a diced apple or pear.  Yummmmm! 

 

“Did you know that nuts aren’t good for dogs?  That’s why mom “says” we can’t have any of the granola.  Really I think it’s just because she wants all for herself.”

    That is a confusing title, isn’t it?? I should add a word of explanation, I suppose. =P
    I’m so glad yours turned out well!

      I think it’s kind of funny and it made me do granola research. I’ve never done that before ;-). Thanks Kristen for this recipe and everything you share through your blog.

I look forward to your thoughts
