Updated on August 4, 2012
Cast your vote for Toaster Oven Cooking - Granola

Making a small batch of your own granola in your toaster oven is so easy! And the best part is that you can customize the recipe to suit your taste and nutritional preferences. A lot of granolas found in grocery stores contain bad fats and oils, plus preservatives. Making homemade granola allows you to have fresh, preservative-free, chemical-free snack food on hand at all times.

See below for suggested variations to this simple recipe.

Nutrition information is for the granola recipe without adding nuts or seeds. Information is approximate and taken from CalorieCount.about.com.

Suggestions & Variations

1. Use a mixture of nuts and seeds that appeals to your tastes. Some examples are sunflowers seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, flax seeds, sesame seeds, peanuts, pecans and pinenuts.

2. You can also add dried fruits, such as raisins, cranberries and and small apricot pieces. You do not need to bake these dried fruits with the granola; just add them to the mix after it's cooled.

3. Try experimenting with different sugars to get a new taste. You can replace the maple syrup with honey, and the brown sugar with cane sugar.

4. To change the flavour and fat content of your homemade granola, try using a different oil such as coconut oil, walnut oil, safflower oil, or sunflower oil.

5. For a sweeter recipe, add a dash of vanilla extract and/or some chocolate chips.

6. This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for a larger batch, but you will probably need to put it in your large oven to bake rather than your toaster oven.
