Quarantine Eats: Blueberry Granola

I’m not going to lie.
This granola I’m about to share with you was really supposed to be granola bars.
However, I didn’t have any cornstarch, so it turned into granola.

But, because the granola actually turned out to be delicious, I thought I’d share this with you anyway.

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 4 cups blueberries
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 4 tbsp honey (or maple syrup – I did a combo of both)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

& here’s how I made it:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prep an 8×8 pan with aluminum foil + non-stick spray
  2. In a bowl, mix together the oats and cinnamon
  3. Add the melted butter and honey (or maple syrup) and mix
  4. Finally, add the blueberries and mix everything together
  5. Pour mixture into prepped pan and bake for 40 minutes
  6. Remove from oven once the oat mix begins to brown and the blueberries start oozing
  7. Enjoy by itself or with greek yogurt!

Like I said, I totally planned for this to be one thing and it turned into another.
But that’s okay! That’s the beauty of trying new things – you may just end up making something else delicious…or something very terrible, but might as well give it a try!

Do you make your own granola?
