  • Use one tablespoon of ground cinnamon.
  • Use a half tablespoon melted coconut oil or olive oil.

The recipe of the Toasted Muesli Granola

  1. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper later, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the oats, nuts or seeds, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl and stir to blend.
  3. In the large bowl pour in the oil, maple syrup, or honey and vanilla. Ensure you mix well till every oat and nut is coated. Then pour granola onto a prepared pan and use a large spoon to spread the mixture until it becomes an even layer.
  4. For about 21 to 24 minutes bake until a light golden colour appears. Ensure you stir halfway. In case, you want extra-clumpy granola, press the stirred granola to create a more even layer. Further, crispiness is attained once it cools.
  5. Let it cool completely to the top with dried fruit. You can break the Granola into pieces or stir it around with a spoon if you don’t want it to be extra-clumpy.
  6. At room temperature, store the granola in an airtight container for 1 or 2 weeks.

How to cook Toasted Muesli Granola
