Grandpa's Homemade Granola
Once you make this super-nutty, not-too-sweet granola, courtesy of Chris Johnson, father of EatingWell's social media editor Sophie Johnson, you'll never go back to store-bought. Nuts, seeds, coconut, dried fruit, Rice Krispies--this easy granola recipe has it all. Feel free to mix and match your favorite add-ins based on what's in your kitchen.
This quick and healthy granola recipe can be enjoyed like cereal with milk or sprinkled over yogurt to make an easy parfait. Serve with a banana for a balanced breakfast.
Sweet 'n' Crunchy Yogurt Topping
Rolled oats are toasted with nuts and brown sugar for a crunchy treat to serve with yogurt. Make the topping ahead and store it to enjoy anytime.
Yogurt Sundaes in Granola Cups
Kids will love this healthy breakfast riff on a classic sundae. We replace the ice cream with good-for-you Greek yogurt topped with fresh berries and a few chocolate chips; it's all served in an edible granola bowl for extra fun.
Crunchy Granola Wedges
This recipe was inspired by chef Lars Kronmark's granola wedges from the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Substitute your favorite fruit, nuts and/or seeds for the sunflower seeds and/or dried cranberries in these granola bars.
There may be as many versions of muesli as there are breakfast cereals, but this one's modeled after the original Swiss wake-you-up--a combination of overnight-soaked grains, nuts, dried fruit and yogurt. Make it the night before and you'll have breakfast ready when you are.
Muesli mixed with yogurt and fruit packs in the nutrition and satisfies all morning long.
Oat-Walnut Granola and Yogurt
Homemade granola served over yogurt makes a satisfying breakfast. Pack it to go for a school or office snack or an easy lunch.
If you've never made your own granola, you'll be amazed at the difference in freshness and flavor--and at how easy it is. Use this recipe as a starting point for your own creativity: substitute dried blueberries or chopped dried apricots for the cranberries, or walnuts or hazelnuts for the almonds.
The secret to keeping granola nutritious, yet tasty, is in the balance of ingredients. We go heavy on the whole grains and add just the right amount of nuts and dried fruit.
Apple & Oat Granola
Dried apples, cranberries and raisins are a tangy combination in this crunchy oat granola.
