Tips for making this granola recipe perfectly

  • Rolled oats are ideal for this recipe. I don’t recommend using quick oats, because you won’t achieve the best results. 
  • While granola is baking, be sure to keep an eye on it. Depending on your oven, the cook time might differentiate. If your oven cooks faster or your granola is browning, reduce the cook time by 2-3 minutes.
  • Don’t forget togently stir the granola, keeping the clusters intact, at the 10 minute mark. This helps ensure even baking.
  • Cool completely to achieve large clusters, before eating or transferring to an airtight jar/container.
