Hola mis amigos! I am so happy right now, writing this post for you guys. Not because it’s granola, because let’s face it, granola is already pretty damn amazing, but because I tweaked my lighting setup and editing process and I think these photos are easily the best I’ve taken so far! So, I might be doing a happy dance while I’m typing this, which is counter-productive, but I just can’t stop. All smiles.
But let’s get back to that granola, shall we? We’re talking easy, and I mean super easy french toast granola.
We’re talking big clusters of crunchy, nutty, french toast flavored deliciousness. Filled with brain-powering walnuts, this granola packs some whole grain goodness as well as a dose of protein. It’s so easy to make, you’ll be ready to pop it in the oven before the oven is finished pre-heating! Just stir together the dry ingredients, pour in the wet ingredients, stir, throw it on a cookie sheet and BAM! ready.
When it comes to baking granola, you want to be sure it’s still just a tiny bit soft when you take it out of the oven, or it’ll end up being too dry tasting and that’s just wrong. I baked this batch for about an hour, stirring it halfway through, and it came out nom nom nom-ilicious. I had a hard time keeping my hands to myself, and keeping the kids out of the kitchen. This easy french toast granola totally hits the spot for breakfast, or as a snack!
- 1/2 C Milk
- 1/2 C Pure Maple Syrup
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Whisk together the wet ingredients in a small bowl and add it to the dry ingredients. Mix until everything is moist and large clumps form.
- Spread the granola mixture across a sheet cake pan and place in the oven for 30 minutes, then stir gently and continue to cook for another 30 minutes, or until the granola starts to brown but is still slightly soft.
- Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool completely, for at least an hour, so the granola can harden into clusters. Break apart with a spoon and store in an air-tight container.
