Homemade Toasted Granola with Almond, Hazelnuts, Cranberries and Sultanas Recipe

Homemade toasted granola

Here in NZ, there are abundance of muesli and granola varieties available in the supermarkets. Hence it never ever crossed my mine to make my own muesli and granola. I always got it off from the supermarket shelves as it’s not too expensive either. That’s my excuse!

But since I have some marcona almonds that I would like to clear it off from my pantry, I thought why not used it to make toasted granola since I need to replenish my stock soon. So, I did some research and bought all the other additional ingredients needed to make my version of granola.

 

 

And oh boy, I am loving it after trying out my homemade granola!

 

It is definitely not as sweet as the one I bought off the shelves. Besides, I get to put in the nuts and dried fruit of my choice. Sounds good right? This will definitely be my recipe keeper and I will be making my own granola from now on.

In the process of making this, instead of using 100% rolled oats, I am using the newly launched product from Uncle Tobys. It’s the ancient grain, which consists of a combinations of rolled oats, rye, puffed millets and quinoa as per the photo shown below.
