I have to confess that this recipe is a little random, especially as a first post.  I do not eat granola very often, and I don’t have very much experience making it.  Luckily, the recipe I created turned out great.  This is what I came up with, and I hope You enjoy!

Orange Cardamom Cranberry Granola:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup rice puffs (or an additional cup oats)
  • 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom (more for stronger flavor)
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cranberries
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet (parchment alternative here)
  2. In a small bowl, juice the orange.  Mix in maple syrup, cinnamon, and cardamom with a fork.
  3. Place oats in a large bowl, and slowly pour in liquid to coat the oats.
  4. Stir in cranberries.  Add rice puffs, last to avoid sogginess.
  5. Bake in the oven for 10-15 min until oats are cooked and crisp.
  6. Allow to cool.  Eat plain, with plant milk, or topping a smoothie bowl!
