Granola is one of those things we mindlessly buy but can easily make and YES a healthy, not-sugar laden version. My recipe below is flexible and totally customizable to what you have on hand in your pantry and what you love. So let’s get started 🙂
3 cups of rolled oats (I prefer One Degree as they are certified glyphosate free because no one wants to eat Round up!)
2 cups of your favorite nuts
1 cup of large coconut flakes
1/2 cup of your favorite seeds (I used hemp, sunflower and chia)
4 tbl of oil of your choice (walnut, avocado, coconut or olive)
4 tbl of maple syrup
1 tbl of ground cinnamon (Ceylon is best)
Pinch or two of a coarse salt
Optional: Dried fruit* see notes.
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.
Into a large mixing bowl, add all of your ingredients and stir really well. Spread the mixture out on your baking sheet and place in the middle rack of your oven. I bake for 45 minutes or so or until golden, stirred every 15 minutes or so. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before storing.
*If you wish to add dried fruit, add it to the cooled granola before storing.
Hope you try this one out and put your own twist on it! Let me know how it turns out. ~ox
