My favorite (healthy) homemade granola
My clothes don’t fit, and I’m on a January diet. Oink to the world. I made my favorite healthy homemade granola for Tyson and myself as a Sunday breakfast treat. It’s a 15-minute job, and the house smells like cinnamon for hours. Layer it with fruit and Greek yogurt — and maybe just a bit of naughty honey, and it’s ready for Sunday morning with the Times.
I’ve used Ellie Krieger’s recipe for years, but I like to substitute chopped hazelnuts for the walnuts. I also double the cinnamon, line the baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray it with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
It’s sweetened only with maple syrup, and contains zero oil. The flavor balance comes from the nuts. (Hint: you can use whatever nuts you have on hand.)
Try it with Fage Greek Yogurt and Arizona clover honey.
I consider this a Sunday morning sundae. See you at the gym. (And ugh.)
