With protein-packed almonds and silky pecans, this crunchy granola will make your house smell heavenly, and absolutely melt in your mouth. This simple recipe is the perfect companion to yogurt, cereal, the top of a smoothie, trail mix, and for solo snacking... I can eat two heaping cups of granola in one sitting. You may have noticed, most of my food gets eaten in ridiculously large quantities. Binge eating health food can't be that bad, right? No need to answer, I like living in my delusional semi-fatty world over here.
My obsession with granola can probably be traced back to my job at a breakfast spot in downtown Tempe called Ncounter. When I started running into my gluten allergy two years ago, I really couldn't eat much there anymore, but granola was always safe. Plus, it could be crammed in my mouth quick enough to get back to serving. (Always a plus in a food industry job.) If you've ever tried the granola here, you know how completely addicting it is, and you'll be happy to know that I've tweaked this recipe enough times that I like it more.
So let's get to baking while it's still cold outside! You know, for another three weeks in Arizona.
