I’ve been a fan of Whole Foods’ blueberry granola for quite a while… and whenever I find a food I love, I am always tempted to make my own version. I finally remembered to pick up some dried blueberries on my weekly grocery trip and had the rest of the ingredients on hand. I made this super easy and quick recipe by throwing together a bunch of the ingredients on the back label of the container, as well as, a few other key ingredients and let it bake while I was working at home today. Multi-tasking at its finest.
* I used 5 tablespoons of butter, and mine turned out more crispy and less clumpy. If you want larger chunks of granola, I would use more butter/oil and brown sugar.
Makes about 5 1/2 cups granola.
UPDATE: I made this recipe again and used less butter (about 4 tbsp), less oats (about 2 cups), more brown sugar (1/4 cup), and instead of stirring in the blueberries at the end, I added them to the mixture. This time it clumped quite a bit more. I think part of the reason it clumped more was because I let it cool before I stirred it.
When I make this again, I think I will add in some Uncle Sam cereal to mix it up a bit, rather than having just oats. Regardless, it turned out fantastic, and is the perfect slightly sweet topping for yogurt, ice cream (or frozen yogurt), cottage cheese, smoothies, and even oatmeal!
