This article is brought to you by our friends at Electrolux as part of an ongoing series focusing on seasonal ingredients. This month we're talking cranberries.
Today: We're walking you through how to make perfect granola at home -- as clumpy or as uniform as you like it.
There's something about the smell of granola toasting in the oven -- it's like a combination of all your favorite baked goods at once. Making it at home also allows you to have complete control over every aspect of the recipe: sweetness, flavors, textures, and ingredients. Best of all, homemade granola means that you can enjoy a from-scratch breakfast even when you're short on time.
To make sure that everything goes smoothly, make sure you have the right equipment first: a big bowl for mixing and a pan with raised sides so you don't lose ingredients to the floor or the oven. If you've always wanted to get those elusive clumps in your homemade granola, we've got just the thing -- all you need is an egg, and a bit of patience. Remember to store it in an airtight container -- it will keep for about a month, but ours never lasts that long.
