Baker's Tips

  • I always use parchment paper as it really helps the granola and not sticking to the pan! My favorite nontoxic parchment paper is from Kana, use code MIMIBAKES for 10% off your order.
  • Make sure to stir the granola halfway though as this will help it cook evenly and not burn on the edge. You can even rotate your baking sheet if your oven has a hot spot.
  • The granola may still seem wet when it’s done and that’s okay. Just let it cool completely on the baking sheet and it will clump together really well, you can break it into clusters then.
  • Store homemade granola in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

FAQ's

Why does the granola look wet?

This granola will look wet when you take it out of the oven, this is normal! Make sure you allow the granola to cool completely on the baking sheet. Then it will crisp up really well and you can break it into chunks! I prefer to bake this at night and then let it cool overnight before breaking it into chunks the following day.

Can I add nuts?

Yes, nuts would be a great addition! If you want to add nuts, I recommend adding either almonds, walnuts, cashews, or pecans. Try adding 113 grams (4 ounces) of the nut of your choice and mix in with the oats.

How do you store homemade granola?

Once the granola has cooled completely (I can't stress that enough), add the granola into an airtight container. I use a glass jar. And keep it in your pantry for up to 1 month.
