Granola is one of those food that you can simply make at your home. I mean store-bought granola is usually over-priced and super sugary. Making it yourself gives you 100% control. You can taste and adjust the amount of sugar as well as the type of sweetener used.



Speaking of sweetener, I am using gula melaka syrup aka coconut palm syrup. You can use maple syrup. As for the nuts, I am using whatever I have on my hands, which are hazelnuts and pistachio. You can of cos switch them out. Almonds, macadamia, pecans or walnuts are pretty decent replacements.



I also added dried currants. You can use raisins, dried apricots or even a combination of dried fruits. The possibilities are endless. And when I said you have 100% control, I mean it. No excuse for you not to make your own granola. On a side note, your kitchen will be permeated by the wonderful aroma during the baking process.
