One of my favorite breakfasts has always been yogurt, fresh fruit, and homemade granola. I have made homemade granola for years, and some of my favorite recipes are on NJSD. It’s an easy and satisfying breakfast when you don’t have time to cook.
I recently came up with a 3 Point Granola that I can eat without sacrificing a day’s worth of points. It’s a two-tablespoon serving, but I prefer the taste of this homemade granola over anything I have found in the store.
If you aren’t looking for a lighter granola check out my two favorite recipes below.
- 2 c. old-fashioned oats
- 1 c. broken pecan halves
- 1 c. sliced almonds
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tbsp. brown sugar
- ¼ c. extra-virgin olive oil
- ¼ c. honey
- ¼ c. Smucker's Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 300℉, Spray a large sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray, set aside.
- In a large bowl mix the oats, pecans, and almonds, set aside.
- In a saucepan mix the salt, cinnamon, brown sugar, olive oil, honey and peanut butter. Heat over medium heat until melted and combined. Remove from heat and add the vanilla. Pour over the oat mixture and toss to coat.
- Pour onto prepared pan, spreading to cover the pan. Cook in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. Return to over and cook 10 more minutes. Remove for oven and stir. If the granola is nice and brown at this point, let stand outside oven to cool completely. If the granola has not browned nicely return to the oven, watching it very closely and bake a few more minutes.
- Store in an airtight container.
