Homemade Granola Recipe

RDtipoftheday's Homemade Granola

I love breakfast! It is my favorite meal of the day. As a Registered Dietitian (RD), I get asked  "what is the most important meal?". It's breakfast! As the name suggests, you break your fast of not eating all night. It's the best way to start your day. Let's start your day with homemade granola. It's a great start to fuel your day.

1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
4 cups old fashion oats
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup sliced almonds

Combine oil, honey, sugar salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and water. Mix together. Add oats, pecans, and almonds. Mix until dry ingredients are coated. Place on 2, 9 x 13 half-sheets lined with parchment paper or a nonstick pastry mat. Bake at 300*F for 20-25 minutes until golden and toasty brown. Enjoy!

Here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy my homemade granola.
