Mango Strawberry Granola | Aromatic Vanilla Cake


I used to be by no means an enormous granola particular person, till I found handmade granola!  Retailer purchased was a bit too candy and sugary for me generally, and the flavors weren’t that thrilling however after I make my very own at dwelling I can tailor it to my sweetness degree and add all types of enjoyable add ins!  Granola is one thing that I like to have readily available, and after I make it it’s enjoyable to snack on as a result of nothing beats a pan stuffed with heat granola recent from the oven!  There are occasions after I can’t cease snacking on it and 1/4 of the pan is gone earlier than I do know it!  Final weekend I made a decision to make some Mango Strawberry Granola and it turned out so scrumptious I made a decision to share the recipe with you all! 

For my granola base, I like to make use of quaint rolled oats as a result of I like texture.  Should you favor a unique oat akin to simply common rolled that may work too.  The concept is to make use of what you’ve got readily available!  On this one I used pistachios and pecans, two of my favourite nuts for snacking however I believe this could be superior with cashews as properly should you like these going with the tropical theme.  Should you wished so as to add in a little bit coconut that may be good too, and I’m completely going to do this subsequent time, I simply did not have any readily available.

I used coconut oil to get this good and crispy, however I additionally added in some almond butter as an alternative of simply utilizing all oil as a result of I favor that. A be aware for those who need to go oil free, I’ve efficiently changed the oil with a fruit puree earlier than, and that works nice together with the nut butter. So should you wished to make use of a mango puree or banana puree to make this oil free go for it! I add in some sea salt and vanilla and this granola is completely balanced!

It smelled so wonderful whereas baking I couldn’t wait to take pleasure in some!  However first I added within the fruit which is definitely freeze dried, so it really works out excellent for protecting this extra shelf steady.  If it lasts that lengthy that’s.  It’s fairly darn addicting while you begin snacking on it from the tray, and my husband who’s type of choosy generally about the sort of stuff really favored it too!  If you’re on the lookout for the proper crunchy snack, undoubtedly give this Mango Strawberry Granola a strive!
