I ripped out this DIY granola recipe from a recent O Magazine issue. I wasn't sure which type of dried fruits and nuts I wanted to use, so I ended up buying a pre-made mixture at the grocery store with almonds, pepitas, dried papaya, raisins, and dried cranberries.
You basically just need plain oats, mixture of dried fruits & nuts, honey, salt, and canola oil. Mix all ingredients together and bake at 300 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Overall, the recipe was very easy, and I like that you can alter it & make it your own each time by adding any mixture of dried fruits & nuts. Next time, I would add at least 1 cup of the dried fruits/nuts (vs. just 1/2 cup the recipe calls for) and add much more honey.
What type of DIY granola would you make?
