Remember last week when I said I'd have a recipe for you to pair with those freshly picked berries? Well, wait no longer, here it is!
You can eat this granola dry, with a splash of milk, over yogurt, or on top of ice cream. Throw in some dried berries or fresh fruit and you have a wonderful breakfast, snack, or dessert!
The other night I grilled up some bananas with rum, butter, and brown sugar. Then served them (warm, of course) over vanilla bean ice cream and a sprinkle of this very granola - super tasty!
Read on for the recipe and have a wonderful weekend!
8 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. vanilla
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbs. honey
(to make your granola clumpier, add about 1/4 cup more honey)
2 cups nuts - any kind you like, chopped or whole
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Combine oats, oil, vanilla, and honey. Spread on to (2) sheet pans. Bake 10 minutes. Remove and stir a little then add the nuts. Bake 10 more minutes. Remove to stir a bit. Bake about another 10 minutes or until the granola has a nice golden color. Allow to cool and enjoy! Store the granola in an airtight container for at least a couple of months - if it lasts that long!
