Homemade Granola.

My pre-work routine often looks a little something like a tornado rolling in on my apartment — I am really not a morning person. Breakfast is usually the last thing on my mind as I’m pulling on my shoe with one hand and putting on mascara with the other, so most days I’ve gotten into the habit of picking up a quick bite at the coffee shop near my office. It’s quick and easy, but it’s also expensive and not that healthy — why are bad habits the easiest ones to adopt? So in an effort to make a breakfast that’s easy for me to grab at home as I’m running out the door I experimented with making my own homemade granola. It’s silly I haven’t done it earlier — it’s just about the simplest thing to make! Full recipe below:

  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tbsp Real Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup of Honey
  • 1/4 cup of Brown Sugar
  • 4 tbsp of Melted Butter
  • 3 tbsp of Vegetable Oil
  • 4 cup of Oats
  • 3/4 cup of Chopped Almonts

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine vanilla extract, syrup, honey, brown sugar, better and oil in a bowl.
  • Pour the mixture over oats and combine until fully coated. Fold in almonds.
  • Spread the granola evenly across a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, tossing the granola mid-way through.
