I know I've been making tons of granola recently, but guys, I just love the stuff.

Anyway, today's recipe is made using some cooked grains as opposed to puffed or raw grains. I really liked how it turned out and it's super easy to make. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy it! Have an awesome day.

Crunchy Breakfast Granola

Yield: about 4 cups


2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups cooked millet (hulled or unhulled)
1/4 cup flax seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons oil (I used sunflower)
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons liquid sweetener such as agave, maple syrup, or palm syrup (or a combination)
2/3 cup dried figs, stems removed and cut into pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and warm 1/2 cup of chosen liquid sweetener, in a small saucepan or microwave safe bowl. Pour into a large bowl and stir in oil, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Add millet, oatmeal, and flax and toss to coat everything well. Spread out in an even layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 to 15, until the granola is almost crisp. Remove from oven and carefully pour back into bowl. Add remaining 2 tablespoons sweetener and dried figs, then stir to coat everything. Pour back onto tray and bake for 5 - 10 minutes until crispy.
Remove tray from oven again and use a rubber spatula to press the granola down as if to make bars.Return pan to oven and turn off heat. Allow to cool with oven, try not to open oven for at least 1 hour even though it's tempting.
Once cool, gently break apart granola into clusters. Store in an airtight container.

@silviabeneforti thanks so much and great to hear from you. Will I see you in Krakow?

The best what you can have in the morning. Nice, crunchy and delicious :)

Great informative publication on the digital currency, they are the future and have power while climbing better

Your granola looks . . . ah . . . healthy and nutritious as heck, but would you be offended if I followed protegeaa's "skillet" recipe with fried hamburger and onions instead? You would? I was afraid of that. Pass the granola, please. ;-)

@h-p-oliver Haha, quite a different recipe from that but please do as you'd like my friend 😅

I'm not usually a granola-type gal, but you may just make me a convert. ;)

I will try this recipe thank you soo much :)

LOOKS SO DELICIOUS! Cereals are the best way to start the day!

I love granola, I used to eat it just by itself, or sometimes with milk. That does look very good.

If you see many beautiful foods, water comes to the spleen...Excellent photography

Anything with blueberries is to die for and the only thing better than oatmeal may be granola. Maybe I will change my nickname from Original Oatmeal to Gnome Granola.

Looks tasty @gringalicious

Thanks for sharing such a healthy breakfast

Have a great Day and feel free to enjoy the link bellow ... you'll hear some great artists involved along with Samuel L.Jackson
