As promised, here is the recipe for my chai spice granola! Again, this is lightly sweet. I added Rice Krispies to this to help bulk up the granola without adding a lot of calories. It stretches the portion size out that way. That said, I do not have nutritionals on this yet 😀
All of the spice gives this a nice flavor. You could try adding some black pepper, too, like would be in chai. I was going to, but forgot.
* 2 tbsp of brown sugar
* 2 tbsp apple juice concentrate
* 2 tbsp water
* 2 tsp oil
* 2 tsp honey
* 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
* 1/2 tsp ground clove
* 1/2 tsp cardamom
* 2 cups rolled oats
* 1 cup rice krispies
* 1/4 cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 325 F. Mix together everything but the last 3 ingredients in a large bow. Add the rest and mix really well until all coated.
Spread on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remember that granolas crisp up once they are cooled, not in the oven, so don’t burn it!
Let cool and store in an airtight container.
