When I realized that the pantry was 100% out of granola, I got excited. The time has [finally!] come for me to make my own granola. And share it with you. In words and pictures. On the Internet. Enjoy!
CAROB CHERRY GRANOLA
This sweet granola tastes great with your favorite non-dairy milk. If you don't have cherries on hand, use another fruit that pairs well with carob.
- 1 cup GF rolled oats
- 10 (or more) fresh cherries, halved with seed and stem removed
- 1/4 cup finely chopped hazelnuts
- 1/4 cup peanuts
- 2T vegan carob chips
- 2T agave nectar
Preheat oven to 300ºF. Combine the oats, hazelnuts, carob chips & agave nectar in a bowl, stirring evenly to coat the mixture. Bake for 5 minutes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Rotate tray; stir granola if needed. Continue baking for no longer than 5 minutes. Break up any large chunks once cool. Serve with cherries.
