Granola has to be one of my favorite snack food to eat and make. I do eat it for breakfast sometimes but I also bring a small container of it to munch on at work.
Here's how to make it.
I actually don't use a recipe right now. In my experience the secret to making really good granola is the ratio of oil to sweetener and the addition of sea salt. I use olive oil and my sweetener of choice is brown rice syrup and palm sugar. The great thing is you don't need a lot of oil and sugar to make tasty granola. I just make sure all my granola ingredients, like the oats and nuts are well covered in a mix of olive oil and brown rice syrup ( you can use agave or maple syrup). I then add the mixture to a lined baking sheet. I lightly sprinkle palm sugar over the top and stir it in. I always add any dried or dehydrated fruit after the granola comes out the oven. Along with any seeds and nuts I would like to stay raw.
