The only thing I love more than a giant handful of chunky crunchy nutty granola is… well… two handfuls of chunky crunchy granola. And it better be nutty almond cashew granola, at that. It comes together in just 30 minutes, is filled with two kinds of nuts, nourishing rolled oats and hemp seeds, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup. Store bought granola is good, but once you go homemade… you rarely go back.
I constantly top any and every single granola breakfast I can with granola. It’s just the easiest and tastiest addition, no?! Plus, the best added bonus is the immense amount of money I save by making my own granola versus buying it. And shoot I mean I think I can bake it quicker than I can run out to the store a buy a bag. Win-win.
This granola is one for the books! It’s so chunky and not one of those granolas that just ends up crumbling into oats the second you touch it. It’s got STRUCTURE, and baby, we love to see it!
Homemade Nutty Granola Recipe Notes:
- Brown. Your. Butter. It adds a boatload of flavor and is the backbone of this recipe!
- Let your granola cool completely after you bake it! Seriously. By letting the granola cool, you’re letting it form its gorgeous delicious chunks.
- While I used this whole batch of granola as a topping for smoothies and yogurt bowls, you can absolutely enjoy this granola just in a bowl of your favorite milk! It’s just as perfect on its own. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do, and that it becomes a staple in your kitchen! I’d love to hear if you try this recipe.
