Delicious homemade blueberry granola packed with tons of flavor! Sprinkle some of it on top of yogurt for breakfast, or enjoy it alone as a snack.
Lately, I've been eating the same breakfast day in and out: a big bowl of Greek yogurt topped with a sprinkling of granola and some fresh blueberries.
And when it comes to granola, I always opt for a homemade version. It's a lot cheaper than the granola you can find in the grocery store, and it's so much more delicious.
So, today I wanted to share one of my favorite homemade granola recipes with you! This recipe is packed with lots of healthy nuts and seeds, and it gets an extra flavor punch from coconut chips and dried blueberries.
Let's make some granola, shall we?
Tips for Making This Granola
Here are a few tips when making this granola:
- Be sure to line your sheet tray with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Otherwise, the granola will stick to the sheet tray and be really difficult to remove later.
- Stir the granola halfway through to help it bake evenly. Around the 10 to 12-minute mark, take the granola out of the oven and give it a good toss with a spatula; this will help ensure that the entire tray of granola bakes at the same rate.
- Make sure not to overbake the granola. When you take the granola out of the oven, it still might be a bit soft to the touch. However, it will continue to crisp up as it cools at room temperature. Once it completely cools, toss it with the dried blueberries and enjoy.
Common Questions About This Granola
Stored in an airtight container, this granola usually stays fresh for a few months.
Absolutely! I like the flavor of almonds and pecans in this recipe, but you can definitely swap as needed. I think walnuts would be delicious in this granola as well.
The biggest culprit of hard granola is over-baking. Keep in mind that the granola will continue to firm up after you remove it from the oven, so be sure to take it out when it's still slightly soft to the touch.
