Making your own granola is easy and can save you money over the pricey store-bought stuff. If you're not sure how to get started, just remember this ratio: six parts dry ingredients to one part wet.

Besides rolled oats, which is the only necessary ingredient for granola, use whatever else sounds tasty. Walnuts, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, puffed grains, anything goes. Also, you don't need six different ingredients to make up the six parts. For example: three parts rolled oats, one part sunflower seeds, one part coconut flakes, and one part puffed rice is perfectly fine.
Your wet ingredients should be a mix of oil and sweetener (honey, agave, or maple syrup, for example). Adjust the levels of each to match your taste. Add an egg white to bind the granola into clumps. You can even add spices like nutmeg or vanilla extract, to amp up your granola's flavour (and no, they don't count towards your wet or dry ingredients.) For more ideas, hit the link below.
