4. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees. Pour the granola onto a parchment-lined sheet pan. Use a spatula to flatten and spread the granola evenly across the pan. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring the granola every 15 minutes so that it bakes evenly. The granola is done cooking when the almonds have become golden brown. Break the granola up and serve with yogurt, on its own, or as otherwise desired. 03:49
