I had a minor obsession with Cafe Fanny’s granola. At $6.99 for a one-pound box, it was easily the most expensive non-alcoholic thing I bought on my grocery store trips. But I thought that granola was difficult to make, that it required a fancy dehydrator.
Hah. I was wrong.
Realizing that unemployment gave me a lot of time but not much money, I researched granola recipes until I found this one. I’ve made it a few times now, sometimes with coconut, sometimes without. I’ve used cranberries instead of raisins and always use almonds and sunflower seeds. I like to bake it a little longer than the recipe calls for to make a crunchier granola. The recipe yields almost three pounds – three times what I got from my box of Cafe Fanny granola – for a fraction of the price.
I store the granola in mason jars and give some away. What’s left is usually consumed in two weeks.
I won’t repost the recipe, since Jessbcuz has already done it for you. Recipe can be found here.
