Rolled oats, additionally know as old style oats, are finest for granola

My go-to combine is almond, pecans and hazelnuts, however you may as well use walnuts, cashews or any of your favourite nut.

Seeds are good too: assume sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds (pepitas), flax seeds, hemp seeds and even chia seeds.

Coconut oil (refined to keep away from the coconut style, or unrefined for a really gentle coconut style).

You can even use a light-weight tasting olive oil.

Maple syrup or honey.

For this primary recipe, I exploit cinnamon. You can even attempt including ginger (not more than a teaspoon), nutmeg (only a pinch), pumpkin spice or gingerbread spice.

Do not skip the salt, it brings out the flavors.

Dried cranberries, cherries, apricots, strawberries… any of your favourite dried fruits. Add them after baking.

Skip them altogether to decrease the sugar content material.
