Delicious thick clusters of Maple Almond Granola are made with just a few ingredients. The trick to thick clusters is to press the granola down tightly when you bake it and let it cool and harden before breaking up into pieces. As a snack, over yogurt or ice cream you will love these Maple Almond Granola Clusters!
I used to love Honey Bunches of Oats cereal but I don't eat much cereal these days. I do miss those big clusters. So I get my full with a little granola in my Greek yogurt.
Sometimes I will buy store bought granola but let's be honest it's crap compared to homemade. And making it is so stinkin easy and takes all of 6 minutes before baking. And it smells delightful.
I made this last week, it makes quite a bit of granola. But that didn't stop my family. It was gone in three days. Guess that's what I get for leaving it in a container on the counter. A handful here, there and boom it's gone.
If I wasn't in Nashville right now you can guarantee I would be making this.Print
