My Favorite Granola Recipe

I love making homemade granola because it makes my home smell amazing and truthfully it just tastes better than anything I can buy in the store! Store granolas can often be hard and loaded with sugar. My granola used 1/2 cup of honey, but on 4-5 cups of oats, so you get a LOT of granola for the honey use! It’s not overly sweet, but is fragrant and delicious with hints of vanilla and cinnamon with almonds providing a healthy crunch.

You will need:

  • 4-5 cups of rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 cup raw whole almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

 

How To Prepare:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

In a large bowl, add oats, nuts, chia seeds, In another bowl, melt coconut and add warm honey. Mix. Add vanilla and mix again.

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix in a pinch of salt with the cinnamon. Oats should all be lightly coated.

Spread oats out on parchment paper on a baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes.

Let oats cool and then enjoy immediately, or store in an airtight container to enjoy later. Serve with Greek yogurt and fruit!
