Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola

Preheat over to 325 degree F. (If your oven bakes hot, be sure to lower the temperature! It burns easily!) Put 8 cups Rolled Oats (I use Gluten-free) into a large bowl.

Add in (Suggestions! Use what you have.):

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, or pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup flaxseeds or chia seeds
  • 1 cup sliced almonds or other nut of your choice
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup cranberries, or other favorite dried fruit
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

In a small sauce pan mix together:

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

Heat sauce over medium-high heat until mixture is blended and bubbly. When sauce is ready pour sauce over the top of oatmeal mixture. Mix together thoroughly.

Next, line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. (Granola will stick if you don’t use parchment paper.) Pour granola onto the prepared baking sheets and spread evenly. Bake granola for 10 minutes. Pull out of the oven and stir well. Replace granola back into the oven and bake for another 10-12 minutes. WATCH IT CAREFULLY as it can burn easily!

Let granola cool. Store it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Store in the freezer if it will take you longer to eat it.
