Today I’m bringing back an oldie but a goodie! I posted this recipe for chewy almond granola about 9 years ago and it definitely deserves a change to be showcased again.
Back when my son Zach was in high school, he came home one day and threw a small Ziploc bag on the counter. It was filled with a chewy almond granola he’d made in his food class.
In case I’ve never mentioned it, I love granola, so I immediately snatched up that bag of granola and tasted it. I was blown away at how good it was. Who knew that a recipe this good could come from a high school foods class?!
If I remember right I ate the entire bag. I couldn’t believe how delicious it was. It wasn’t your typical crunchy granola. It was soft, chewy and perfectly sweet.
So, so good!
Lineup of ingredients:
- canola oil
- old fashioned oats
- brown sugar
- sliced almonds
I’ve had a hankering for it the last few days so I threw a batch together the other day. This chewy almond granola is so simple and super fast to make. You are literally done making it in about 10 minutes. This makes a great snack for your kids to eat after school.
Also, this chewy almond granola makes a great Christmas gift for neighbors. It always gets rave reviews when I give it out. Just toss some in a cellophane bag and tie a ribbon around it. . . who wouldn’t love to get a bag of delicious granola? You could even attach a card with the recipe on it.
You could easily swap out the almonds for a different nut, but the almonds are so good in it. Also, you could toss in some coconut or mini chocolate chips, raisins instead of craisins. It’s your call.
