We all know all the endless variations of nut and seed butters and spreads. But have you tried granola butter yet? I was so intrigued when I first read about it.. and thought “I need to order it right away”. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find anyone selling it in Sweden. So I had to make it myself. And to be honest, its silly easy, so no need to buy it in the store! The great thing with a granola butter is that you can vary it endlessly by choosing different types of granolas. You only need two ingredients; Granola and coconut oil. And then you’re all set and have a home made spread. I would recommend you to use a granola with nuts and seeds in it, this will make ut smoother and less dry than if you use a granola that is mostly based on oats or similar. The amount of coconut oil needed will vary depending on which granola you use. Granola butter (of course depending on which one you use) is sweeter and has a richer taste than regular butters if you ask me. This since you have several different ingredients in a granola. This spread is really great to use just as you would use a regular nut or seed butter/spread.
