Espresso (Coffee) Granola

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.

Ingredients

  • 3.25 cup old fashioned oats
  • 6 Tbsp molasses
  • 0.5 cup honey
  • 0.5 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp hot water
  • 4.5 Tbsp dry instant espresso
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.5 cup almonds, finely ground
  • 0.5 cup coconut (omit if you want)
  • 0.5 cup wheat germ
  • 0.25 cup brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, coconut, ground almonds and salt.
  2. Combine dry instant espresso granules, hot water, and vanilla; stir to dissolve the granules.
  3. 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.
  4. Let cool completely.
