Granola is one of my favorite snacks. It’s really great for eating handfuls while camping or just everyday snacking. And the best part is, it is super easy to make exactly the way you want. You can change the nuts, or the fruit, or the sweetener. Today though we are going to check out 5 different recipes and see what makes a good granola!
The recipes are:
- Granola Recipe by The Kitchn
- Easy healthy Granola by Elizabeth Rider
- Easy homemade Granola by House of nash eats
- Granola found on the pioneer woman
- Healthy Granola by Cookie and Kate
So because granola is super easy to adjust the quantity. And because some of the recipes weren’t the same size, I changed all the recipes to use only 100g of oats.
So then the costs of each recipe is:
- Granola Recipe: $2.53
- Easy healthy Granola: $1.92
- Easy homemade Granola: $1.73
- Granola: $2.21
- Healthy Granola: $2.26
So taking a look at the breakdown, there are a couple interesting things. One the cost of the nuts makes a big difference in the overall cost of the recipe. This might be expected but I think it’s still interesting. The other big thing is the sweet liquid, maple syrup is much more expensive than honey so using honey is more cost-effective. I’m not entirely sure that vanilla extract is needed, or whether using an imitation would make sense as well. Obviously the oats makes a big impact on the cost, but there isn’t really anything you can do about that.
