Granola

Share on Facebook

Crunchy, chewy, sweet, and even a little salty…I’m talking granola, people! We like granola, but we never really bought it at the store very often. The problem I found with store bought granola was that it’s usually very high in sugar (even the “healthy” brands), and they’re fairly expensive for a small amount. So I decided to do some research and come up with a recipe to make my own. I looked over a few recipes, and here is what I came up with. The great thing about this recipe is that it’s customizable so you can add whatever it is that you like!

Granola

7 cups oats

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 cup walnuts, chopped

1 cup raisins

3/4 cup honey

4 Tbsp. coconut oil (or whatever oil you prefer)

**The general idea is that you want to have 10 cups of dry ingredients, so you could do less oats and add in more extras, like other dried fruits or seeds.**

Step 1. Prep and mix your dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Step 2. Melt honey and oil in a pot over low heat until runny and combined.

**I have also used maple syrup instead of honey, and it was delicious, too!**

Step 3. Pour honey mixture over dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

Step 4. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the mixture in a thin layer. I usually use two baking sheets just so the layers of granola are fairly thin and toast quickly.

Step 5. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes or until lightly toasted. Stir half way through the baking time to allow for even toasting. Allow to cool completely before storing.
