It is my opinion that there are not enough breakfast foods that taste like dessert. There's a small selection of coffee cakes, donuts, and the occasional breakfast cookie, but that's about it. So, one day while I was making the oh so healthy Cranberry Almond Granola I started thinking about how a basic granola recipe could have similar ingredients and tastes to an oatmeal raisin cookie. And- Tada!- the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie granola was born.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Granola
print this recipe
6 Tablespoons salted butter (or if you use unsalted, add a pinch of salt to the mix)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
¾ cup raisins
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups rolled oats
Preheat oven to 325°.
In a medium saucepan melt the butter then add the brown sugar and cinnamon into the pan. Stir until well combined. Add the raisins and oats into the pan and mix until completely blended.
Spread the granola onto a lined cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Stir the granola a few times to turn it over, then bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until golden and slightly crispy.
Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
