Yogurt is great and all, but let's agree it's a bit boring and the one-note texture leaves a lot to be desired. It needs crunch. It needs texture. Might I say, it needs this Spiced Walnut Granola.
This is one of those recipes that just popped into my mind as I was going through the ingredients I had on hand and working with recipes I've already made. Let me tell you, the mix of crunchy chopped walnuts mixed with cinnamon, sugars, and nutmeg and baked until crispy is so addicting. This makes a big batch so it's perfect to make on a Sunday and have it for the week. And if I'm being honest, my husband and I found ourselves just snacking on this over the weekend...it's that good.
Spiced Walnut Granola Crumble is made with the mixture of chopped walnuts, sugars, cinnamon, and nutmeg combined with melted butter and baked to perfection.
-1/2 cup quick oats
-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
-3/4 cup chopped walnuts
-1/4 cup dark brown sugar
-1 tablespoon white sugar
-5 tablespoons butter, melted
-1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon + 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
-1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, walnuts, sugars, and spices. Add in the melted butter and stir until all the dry ingredients are wet. Lastly, add in the vanilla and stir.
3. Pour the crumble onto a baking sheet. It's ok that this will be a mix of larger chunks and then portions that are small pieces. Once it bakes you can break up the larger pieces into more of a crumble. Bake for 15 minutes.
