BM# 77: Week 1/ Day 3
Theme: Recipes with Whole Grains
Dish: Almond Butter Granola

For the final day of this week’s marathon I have a granola recipe made with rolled oats, almonds and almond butter. Granola is a great edible gift to give away because it is a healthier and nutritious option than baking cookies or cakes. So recently granola has become my go-to edible gift.Granola with Almond Butter & Coconut OilI have quite a few granola recipes on the blog, but I keep bookmarking new recipes to try. Today’s Almond Butter Granola recipe is from the Kitchn. I LOVE granola and have it for breakfast almost every day. I eat it over Greek yogurt topped with chopped banana and berries. I also snack on it throughout the day 🙂Granola with Almond Butter & Coconut OilThis particular recipe has almond butter along with coconut oil and maple syrup. Almond butter adds a nice nuttiness to the granola. This is not too sweet, perfectly crunchy with the right amount of clusters. If you want your granola to be more clustery, then don’t stir it as much while baking.Granola with Almond Butter & Coconut OilI buy mason jars from art supply stores on sale and they are great to fill and give away as gifts. Just wrap a cute little ribbon around the neck and you have a delicious edible gift that everyone will love.

  1. So you have become a complete American with your breakfast ! Ha ha . Seriously even I wouldn’t mind of these packed in a jar as a gift . The granola looks fantastic .

  2. You know, I have always wanted to try my hand at making my own granola, and this makes it look so easy! I love that this is a vegan option as well. I think I am going to give it a try this weekend! Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. Thank you so much for a batch of this granola( I am guessing this is the one you gave to us). I use it on my son’s smoothie bowls as a topping. It also satisfies the crunchy munching snacking need. Have to make a batch sometime soon
