Nutty, Crunchy, Not-too-Sweet Granola

by Jillian Leslie on

Nutty, Crunchy, Not-too-Sweet Granola | CatchMy Party.com I eat a lot of yogurt. I love the tangy taste and the fact it's so good for me!

My goal with this granola was to come up with a mix that was crunchy, nutty, and not too sweet (but sweet enough) so it could work in plain or sweetened yogurt. And guess what? I think I achieved it. My secret is to add a little salt, in addition to the honey and brown sugar.

I must say, this really brings out the flavors.

This granola is so simple to make and so delicious don't be surprised if you never want store-bought again.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (if you love coconut, add 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Activia Harvest Picks yogurt

    I love making my own granola. This recipe is very simliar to mine. The only differnce is I add sea salt at the end, just enough to taste. If you like salty you will like this.
