Granola made with nuts, raisins, oats, and other nuts

This granola is great, plain or as an ice cream topping. My husband and I are wheat, barley, and canola growers in Arrowwood, Alberta.

Ideas for Crunchy Granola

I was wondering if you had any suggestions for how I could make this granola recipe a bit more nutritious.

Can you think of anything else that would go well in this recipe for crunchy granola?

How can I make granola that forms uniform clusters?

Make your own granola without adding extra sugar by using unsweetened coconut flakes instead of sweetened ones. Avocado or sunflower oil are good alternatives to canola oil. Listed below are some of the ways in which avocado oil outshines other cooking oils. Get the munchies for chocolate? Once the granola has cooled on wire racks, you can add the semi-sweet or dark chocolate morsels (to avoid melting chocolate into the mixture). You can substitute any other kind of nut for the almonds, or use dried fruit of your choice. Incorporate all of the ingredients into this fantastic granola mixture. Homemade granola can be made to stay in larger chunks by gently folding it over every few minutes while it bakes and stirring it every so often. Alternatively, you can use the weight of the sheet tray to pack the mixture tightly together and speed up the clustering process. Overbaking and burning are prevented when baking on parchment paper. This tasty granola recipe calls for the same techniques.
