I am making a breakfast basket for my family for Christmas. I have filled it with all kinds of homemade breakfast treats that I hope they will love! I was looking for a granola recipe the other day when I saw this one pop up on the cooking board I frequent. It looked delicious! It smelled absolutely delicious when it was baking. My husband came home and thought cinnamon rolls were baking in the oven! I made this and took it to work the next day, where it received great reviews. I will be making this again!
Chunky Crunchy Granola
Source: The Local Cook, original source Simply in Season
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1/2 cup raisins (I used mini chocolate chips instead)
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup milk
In a large bowl combine the first 7 ingredients (if you are using the chocolate chips instead of the raisins leave these out). Then, add the oil, honey, and milk. Stir until flour is incorporated. If needed, add a tablespoon more of milk.
Bake at 300 degrees for about an hour, stirring every 10 minutes. I spread it out over a large baking sheet. Bake until the granola is light brown. Let cool, and then stir in the chocolate chips. Store in an airtight container for a week or freeze.
