A super easy chewy granola recipe

We’ve never made granola from scratch, so we decided to give it a whirl. We adapted this recipe into a peanut butter & cranberry chewy granola. Like any recipe we ever attempt, it’s super easy (and tastes great!).


Step 1: toast the dry ingredients (oats and almonds) at 350F for 5 minutes. Stir them around, then continue toasting for another 3-5 minutes. Pour into a large bowl.

Step 2: melt the butter, honey, vanilla extract, and brown sugar over low heat, stirring occasionally until fully dissolved.






(Clearly, a spatula would have worked best to flatten the granola, but we don’t have one. So we kept it real and used our rice scooper.)


If the granola is too crumbly as you cut it, stick it back in the fridge for another 30 minutes and try again. Otherwise, enjoy!


PS: There are tons of other ingredients you could add instead (like chocolate chips, blueberries, dried coconut) or remove (peanut butter, etc.). This recipe is prime for improvisation.
