This won’t be the last granola recipe I post here, but it’s the perfect one to start. This is, hands down, my best basic granola. No fruit, no seeds, just oats, nuts and natural sweeteners. If your oats are gluten-free, the granola will be too. If you’re not already convinced, consider this: your house will smell AMAZING. Plus, every single person I have ever gifted this granola loved it. Okay. Let’s head to the kitchen.
I’ve mentioned before one of the reasons I find myself so repeatedly delighted in the kitchen is the learning. For someone who bores easily, the kitchen is a place of endless growth. No matter how much you know, there’s always more to learn, more to try. Ingredients that were once foreign become favorites, landing on new flavor combinations brings joy, and sometimes cleaning out the refrigerator yields surprisingly delicious results.
