Shanny
- do you spread this out on a cookie sheet to bake?
and
- how long can you expect it to keep?

Look's very good, by the way.

I am so sorry for forgetting the basic how-to. Just spread the mixture evenly on a large baking sheet that has sides . . . I use a jellyroll pan.

This is a new low-carb recipe from our daughter-in-law, but I've made homemade granola for years; I just honestly don't know how long it keeps, because it's always gone in a few days.

I made this this morning. OMG! This is really good!!!!

I made 1/4 the recipe, since it was new to me, and also I didn't have all the ingredients listed (i.e.: no pumpkin seeds, no sliced almonds). Use mosly pecans and almonds - hand cut raw whole almonds (which is another good reason for just a 1/4th recipe as this is a lot of work!).

While it probably isn't quite as good as yours, Shanny, it certainly is flavorful, and will be a nice "granola" type "cereal" which I really miss. Next time I'm shopping I'll stock up on the missing nuts and seeds.

--------

Just a thought. I make a faux apple from jicama stewed in brewed cranberry/apple tea, chopped up into small bits. I'm thinking that this would be a good addition to the granola - added with the milk (almond milk for me, of course!).

Default Awesome granola

I just finished making my third batch of this awesome "granola" (I make a half recipe because it's just me eating it, and it lasts me about 2 weeks).

Shanny, this has become a staple for me. I put it on anything that needs a crunch, including faux apples, pumpkin pie, pudding - and eat it just as it is. Every once in a while I put it in a bowl and pour almond milk over it.

Since I don't eat dairy, I just use all coconut oil, and I cut the oil a bit because it seemed to take forever for it to dry out in the oven. Perhaps that's because I also don't include the oats. But I do increase the coconut flakes (the big pieces are best).

I am forever in your debt for this recipe. And wanted to bump this up for anyone new who might like it. And what's not to like!

I'm delighted it's filling a much-needed niche for you, VeeJay - I eat it dry myself, like trail mix, and sometimes with cream. I'll be trying a new wrinkle now too . . . before all I had was WF pancake syrup, but now that I have a case of WF caramel syrup in the pantry, it'll be the next tweak! And I do use a lotta coconut - I love the stuff!

For anyone that hasn't tried this recipe yet, I just discovered that it's really good on top of homemade LCHF vanilla ice cream. Definitely bump worthy for the new folks.
