Convection Oven Granola

convection oven granola

When it comes to ovens, I’m a little spoiled. After years of having older models, I now have a KitchenAid double oven with convection. The only probable is, I forget to use it. I still have to remind myself that I can use both ovens and not just the top one, and I hardly ever remember to bake with convection. When I do, it’s great. And one area where it really shines (aside from cookies) is granola. Using a convection oven for granola helps it cook a little quickly and evenly.

Melissa’s Granola

When I was little, there was only one type of granola in my world and that was CW Post. Now, there are a million brands of granola and you can buy it at just about any grocery store. Even Target sells granola — more than 6 different types last time I counted, and some of […]

Clumpy Granola

by on November 24, 2006 · 13 comments

I’ve updated my granola recipe. The old one was good, but crunchy rather than crispy. Oil makes granola crispy and crunchy, so I’ve switched to a new recipe which has a little oil. This one is similar to Alton Brown’s, but with a few changes in ingredients and technique. I like my granola clumpy, and […]

Small Batch Crunchy Granola

Granola without oil

I’ve tried a lot of granola recipes, but the one I always come back to is from Kathleen Daehlman’s book Cooking Thin. Unlike the higher oil crispy granolas, Kathleen’s recipe is very crunchy and has a great vanilla flavor. The nuts make it kind of rich, so it’s probably best eaten as a dry snack […]
