Guilty Pleasure Granola
This granola is much more sweet than my Yummy Healthy Granola and is perfect for late night snacking. I also use this granola when I’m craving a sweet crunch in my yogurt. This recipe takes a little more work than the healthy version too, but it is well worth it. You can easily modify this recipe in any way you see fit.
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup organic raw sugar
½ tsp cream of tartar
½ cup organic brown sugar
2 cups rolled oats/ old fashioned oats
¼ cup chopped raw nuts- optional
¼ cup unsweetened dried raisins- optional
1 tsp vanilla- optional
2 Tbsp butter
Pinch of fine sea salt
In medium saucepan heat water, sugar and cream of tartar to just boiling. Lower heat and simmer for 5 mins. Add brown sugar ¼ of a cup at a time, being sure that it dissolves completely before adding next ¼ cup. Simmer for 5mins. Mix in 2 Tbsp butter until completely melted. Stir in oats and optional mix ins. Mix well to coat. Spread out on jelly roll pan(or edged cookie sheet) lined with parchment paper and bake at 300 degrees for 20 mins or until light golden brown. Place tray on cooling rack and cool for 20 mins. Granola will harden when cool… break into pieces to enjoy a tasty chunky treat.
To store place in an airtight container- I use mason jars- and keep in warm dry place for up to two weeks. You can also store in the freezer for several months.
