I love granola. I know that their health claims are nothing but marketing spiel, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that they are so darn tasty. However, humid weather is not a friend of lovely crunchy granola. Once granola has lost its crunchiness, I don’t gain as much pleasure from munching on it.
However, that doesn’t spell the end for my stale granola. I give them a second lease of life by throwing them in muffins.
I’ve recently been addicted to Sweet Home Farm’s vanilla cocoa granola and that’s what I’ve used in these muffins. I’ve also complemented these flavours by using vanilla-flavoured yoghurt, although plain would work just as well too.
