This makes a great treat for my kids not to mention myself! Really tasty and satisfies your hunger. Made for ZWT4 Family Picks for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
I made this as is, except for not having hazelnuts to add. I found that I wouldn't bother adding the oats to it in the future, but switch them for a different type of nuts instead. I almost found it a bit too sweet and that may have been the syrup I used. Other than that, it was tasty.
An excellent and easy recipe. Following the first reviewer's lead, I let the mix in the oven for about 25-30 minutes. The result was a nicely roasty flavor imparted to nuts. I used 0.5 tsp of ground cinnamon in place of the stick and i used the recommended 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and all other ingredients as written (hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds etc). I made this for a hike I'm doing tomorrow but it's hard to keep out of this wonderful mix today. Thanks for sharing. Highly recommended.
Oh yum! This was so easy, tasty, and good for you! I have been wanting to try making my own granola/gorp and I'm so glad that your recipe was my introduction. I loved how easy it was and the fact that there is no added fat. I did have to bake mine for about 35 mins, stirring every 10 mins, to get it roasted like I wanted it. At 15 mins it was still really wet. I used pine nuts, vanilla, all dried cranberries instead of raisins, and pecans instead of pumpkin seeds. I also decided to leave out the chocolate because I thought the pure maple syrup I used added just the right amount of sweetness. I'm excited to try other nut and fruit combintaions and I think I'll add some ground cinnamon for extra cinnamon flavor. Tnahks so much for a versatile, yummy, healthy, low fat granola/gorp recipe!
