TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST GRANOLA
Quality Ingredients: Use fresh and good quality ingredients to guarantee a perfect flavor and texture in your granola.
Oats: The granola base is rolled oats, which provide fiber and essential nutrients. Opt for thick rolled oats, as they retain their shape and texture better during baking.
Maple syrup: It gives a sweet touch, flavor, and a sticky texture that helps the ingredients stick together.
Healthy Fats: Use healthy vegetable oils, like coconut or avocado oil, to help the granola brown evenly and give it a crunchy texture. In addition, healthy fats provide benefits for the heart and brain.
To bake: Preheat the oven to a moderate temperature (about 150-170 °C / 300-340 °F) and bake the granola on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper , stirring every 10-15 minutes to ensure even browning. The granola is ready when it’s golden and crisp, but be careful not to burn it.
How to Store Granola: Allow granola to cool completely before storing it in an airtight container. This will keep it crunchy and ensure it lasts longer.
How to eat it: Serve your homemade granola with yogurt, milk, or fresh fruit or as a topping for your favorite desserts.
