Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola is a mixture of rolled oats, nuts and dry fruits with oil, maple syrup and sugar. It makes a healthy breakfast or a snack or a topping in your ice cream or Greek yogurt. This is a basic granola recipe and it is very easy to make. Make your own cereals with your favorite mixture and mix it with cold or warm milk or munch as a snack. I have added all my favorite ingredients in my Granola. You can also include seeds such as pumpkin and sunflower seeds and other dry fruits such as dates, prunes and berries. If you start making your own cereals or granola bars you will never go back to the store bought ones. Believe me and give it a try!!!

Combine oats, almonds, cashew nut and sugar in a baking sheet. Mix oil, salt and maple syrup in a bowl and add it to the mixture in the baking sheet and mix everything well.

Cook for 1 hour stirring every 15 minutes. The mixture will become golden brown evenly. Remove from oven and mix in raisins.
