This may sound crazy but it's just the truth...I'm not much of a fan of honey. Lately I've really been getting into all things oats since I found a good source for inexpensive gluten free oats. We've posted a recipe on here already for the Best Homemade Granola but today I'm going to change things up a bit and show you how to make what I think is the easiest homemade granola recipe!
I may not love honey but I sure do love butter. In everything. When I was trying to think of a replacement for oil and honey in granola my mind immediately went to butter because, why not? Might be good right? Turns out my feeling was right!
Homemade Granola Recipe
What You Need:
- 3 c. oats (rolled or quick)
- 1/4 c. butter, melted
- 1/4 c. raw sugar (use brown sugar if you don't have this)
- Add-ins! *See note below
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter and the sugar.
Measure the oats into a larger bowl, pour the butter/sugar mixture over the oats. Stir in any add-ins that need to be cooked.
Bake the homemade granola recipe at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, stir around, bake for another 15, stir again, and bake for a final 15.
When you are done you can add in any add-ins that didn't need to be baked and store in a jar. This batch makes about a quart jar's worth of granola, more if you add in extras.
The result is like the oat version of kettle corn, so yummy! We like to eat it on top of yogurt for breakfast. This is a good basic starter recipe too to be able to add into other recipes if you want something quick and easy that you don't have to add a lot of extras to.
- Chocolate Chips
- Dried Fruit
- Peanut Butter
