Even though this recipe is “sweet”, it feels like a breath of fresh air in the sugary line-up. Maybe because after all that fudge, candy, and cheesecake, a glass (or bowl) of milk sounds really refreshing. And I don’t even like milk. Well, in a “drink a cold cup” kind of way. But don’t worry there are far too many dairy products I love and consume daily.
I think you’re going to love today’s recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, Delia Creates.
She has a knack for taking pretty pictures, making cool things, and doing fun stuff with her kids….like this DIY gift idea. Floating kids in a soap bottle? Totally rad.
But let’s talk food.
Here’s what you need to make for breakfast today. I know my husband will want it…..
Hi there! I’m Delia from Delia Creates.
Today I’m going to share a deliciously easy breakfast granola.
It’s a favorite family recipe from my sweet sister-in-law Amy.
I like to to call it a sweet granola because it’s just that. With two cups of sweetener per batch, it can satisfy your sweet tooth yet still make you feel good about eating it.
Gather your ingredients:
* 5 cups of rolled oats – not the quick cooking kind
* 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1/2 cup – 1 1/2 cups of nuts, depending on how nutty you like your granola. You can use whatever kind you like. I used sliced almonds and walnuts.
Mix and match 2 cups of a sweetener of your choosing. Brown sugar, honey, real maple syrup… I just don’t recommend white granulated sugar. I like to use 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup honey.
1/2 cup of hot water
Step One: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F, and mix your dry ingredients together thoroughly.
You need to stir the granola and rotate the pan every 15 minutes during the baking time.
It makes a great snack alone, but my favorite way is to eat it like cereal in a bowl full of milk.
Thanks for having me over Dana.
Oh yum indeed. I haven’t made granola since I was a kid, with my mom. So it’s definitely time to try it out. And wow….what a great tip about spraying the measuring cup before pouring the honey in! Never thought of that! And that’s why I love you Delia. Thank you for sharing with us!
