While most of you plan to go to the beach and go camping, my wife and I have been reading and watching repeats of The Office and Parks and Recreation. We have been sleeping like logs.

Whenever he’s old enough, we’ll take our kid out for lunch on the patio, or to the country for fresh ice cream when he’s old enough. In the meantime, we’re enjoying our family time together.

I always have grains on hand in the kitchen because of the convenience of having a jar at hand so that I can add a crunch whenever I want. I sometimes add a crunch to my yogurt or smoothie bowls. It is also great to have a cup of granola and almond milk occasionally for a snack.

Due to its higher nutritional value than the processed options available at the grocery store, this granola is one of my go-to stashes. Instead of using traditional granola ingredients, I substituted nutrient-dense ingredients for a delicious cinnamon raisin granola recipe!

How allergy-friendly is this recipe?

No soy, no eggs, no dairy, no nuts, or no soy are normally found in granola with cinnamon and raisins. The recipe can be made completely nut-free if you choose to do so.

Why is granola different from muesli?

There are two types of muesli: raw muesli and granola, both of which are mixed grains, nuts, and seeds. Granola is sweetened with sugar, honey or another sweetener similar to sugar, which adds a crisp and crunchy texture.

Does Granola Really Have Health Benefits?

When you combine fruit, nuts, and oatmeal, you can make healthy granola. It’s ideal to start your day with fruit, nuts, and oatmeal because they all provide a good source of nutrients.

This recipe can be made with honey, as long as it isn’t added in excess. However, if you add sugar over what’s specified in the recipe, that will reduce its nutritional value.

Additionally, adding anything sweet or sugary to your diet reduces the nutritional value of your food. Your body requires something else in order to function normally.

  • 1.5 cup Sliced almonds
  • ½ tsp Ground cinnamon

  3. Put the granola on top of your parchment-paper-lined baking sheet and spread it out with a silicone spatula. With a spatula, flatten the mixture into an even layer as well as apply some pressure so that the granola is compact.Cinnamon Raisin Granola Added
  4. Place the baking sheet on the center rack and bake at 300°F for 20 minutes. Then, rotate the pan 180 degrees and continue baking for 10-15 minutes (I normally do 15) or until crispy and golden.Cinnamon Raisin Granola Mixing
  5. Every oven is different, so just keep an eye on it and remove it from the oven when it is crispy and golden to your taste. During the halfway point, I do not stir, so I can break them up when they cool. Immediately after removing your granola from the oven, let it sit on the baking sheet until it is completely cool. During this time, it will get its signature crunch we all love!Cinnamon Raisin Granola Baking Tray
  6. Break the clusters into smaller pieces and stir in the raisins when they're cool and crisp. The granola will keep in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Snack on it as a snack, add it to your trail mix, mix it into milk like granola cereal, or top with fresh fruit and all the toppings you like.Cinnamon Raisin Granola Jar
