How to make your own granola! Homemade granola is so much tastier and better than granola from a carton. This recipe for granola is a basic recipe. So we have worked with as few products as possible. Feel free to add your own raisins, pieces of dark chocolate, superfoods or seeds. It is best to add raisins and dark chocolate only after baking. The most important thing about making your own granola is that you use a good amount of fat and sugar, so that the flakes become crunchy. Of course we chose the better options: coconut oil and maple syrup are the best choice in our opinion. Let's bake!
