  1. Can I soften the goji berries first? Maybe soak them in liquid, then add them to the cooked granola? I find sometimes they are very chewy, I prefer them when they have been soaked.

    1. You most definitely can! I personally usually enjoy this granola with oat milk, cereal-style and I find letting that sit for a few minutes, softens the goji berries as well.

    1. The quickest and easiest way to do that would be to mash 2-3 bananas and mix with about 2 cups of granola, then press the mixture into a square pan and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. I hope this helps!

    1. Hi Lauren! So sorry you had that experience. It certainly shouldn’t burn. I have a few questions—did you make any changes to the recipe at all? Did you add the walnuts and goji berries at the end of the cooking time as instructed? If you followed everything to a T, I can only guess that it is due to differences in ovens and oven temps, which does sometimes happen.
