Pecan millet granola
I was craving granola that was crunchy, had a short ingredients list and simple, but wholesome flavor. Sometimes I don't want a lot of seeds and dried fruits, sometimes I just want to bite into some sweet grains.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 cup dry millet
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/8 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 300.
- Combine honey and coconut oil. Microwave for 20-30 seconds or until the warm.
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to coat.
- Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
- Allow to cool completely, then transfer to an airtight container.
Makes about 8 1/3 cup servings
As you know, I love millet so I wanted to find a way to slip it into the granola for extra crunch. It worked amazingly well and added a beautiful crunchy texture and toasty, nutty flavor. I don't think I'll ever buy granola again.
As a side note, it's perfectly normal for a 21 year old to be making granola in her cupcake slippers at 9PM on a Thursday, right? I didn't think so.
