I make this granola recipe in less than 35 minutes. I prepare it in less than 10 minutes and then go do my thing. This espresso granola recipe satisfies my coffee craving when I don't actually want to have another cup of coffee.
3 ¼ cup old fashioned oats
½ cup wheat germ
½ cup coconut (omit if you want)
½ cup almonds, finely ground
½ tsp salt
4 ½ Tbsp dry instant espresso
3 Tbsp hot water
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup canola oil
½ cup honey
6 Tbsp molasses
¼ cup brown sugar
In a large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, coconut, ground almonds and salt.
Combine dry instant espresso granules, hot water, and vanilla; stir to dissolve the granules.
Stir together the oil, honey, molasses and brown sugar in a measuring cup; add the coffee mixture and stir to combine. Pour the oil and coffee mixture over the oat mixture; mix together until oats are evenly coated. Spread granola mixture onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake at 315 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring about every 10 minutes.
Let cool completely.
