Let me just start this post by saying - I love granola. Crunchy, sweet, carby goodness, and super easy to make (thank goodness, because store bought gets expensive really quick). Granola can be a great option for hiking and backcountry trips because it’ll provide quick energy, packs up light enough, and can be a cheap(er) alternative to other hiking foods. Not to mention, what Mountain Chicks doesn’t love some homemade goodness while away from home?
This granola won’t be super clumpy like store bought granolas, but each bite will still pack a flavour-filled punch. This recipe is veggie friendly, but if you want to go the vegan route, I suggest using agave as your sweetener (keep your sugar sticky!) I’ve included some of my favourite add ins below, but feel free to experiment (and then let me know about said experiments because I’m always on the hunt for new combos)! Scroll down, and get cooking:
Prep time: Pretty darn quick
Cook time: ~40 minutes
