Tasty and super easy homemade granola. Vegan & GF.

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.

I used a combination of spicy maple syrup and classic.
Store in an airtight container or a glass jar with a lid for optimal freshness.

Hope you try this one out and put your own twist on it! Let me know how it turns out. ~ox
