Cinnamon Nut Granola

I’ve never really enjoyed eating granola for breakfast – or any cereal really –  which is why even though today’s recipe is a really nice granola recipe, I still don’t eat it for breakfast. I will, however, tell you all the other amazing ways you can eat granola. Don’t get me wrong though, this can still be eaten for breakfast and I did try it and like it, but I just prefer eating it in other way’s I’ll explain below (in full discretion i’ve already made three four batches of this recipe – and not for recipe testing purposes).

This recipe is insanely simple to make, bursting with flavour, lasts a long time (even when you pick at it like I do) and you can make a big batch at a time. It isn’t my recipe, although I have slightly modified the quantities within it.

Well, there was a slight ‘hitch’ in that plan … you see I really REALLY like the taste of these almond cookies … like REALLY like them … to the point where only half of what I made I was willing to give away … (I swear I am a good person).

To say I was impressed with how these turned out is a major understatement. These were nice and crispy on the outside and gooey and soft inside. They tasted and felt store bought –  a real crowd favourite! Continue reading
