Granola Blends: A Little Fruity, A Little Nutty

The great thing about do-it-yourself granola is that you can think outside the box, and customize it with whatever nuts, seeds, and dried fruit sound good to you. Here are three delicious blends, each with its own winning texture and taste, to get you started.

Sweet + Tart
Use pistachios and sunflower seeds in the base. 

After baking, stir in dried cherries and 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut.

 

 

Crunchy
Use sliced almonds and pepitas in the base. Stir in 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal and dried currants after baking.

Tropical
Use macadamia nuts in the base and 3/4 teaspoon dried ginger. Add molasses as the sweetener. After baking, stir in 3/4 cup pineapple, 1/4 cup ginger, and 1/2 cup coconut.

Tips + Variations
Vegan
Leave out the egg whites. The granola won't be quite as crunchy, but it will still be very tasty.

Chunky
If you prefer a loose granola, simply stir instead of flipping during cooking.

Freeze It
Finished batches can be frozen in an airtight container for up to three months.
