The Perfect Granola Recipe

I have vowed to never buy granola again, and neither should you- why when you can make the best stuff right at home? The beauty of homemade granola is that you can put exactly what you want into it and use better ingredients for the same cost or less then buying pre-made stuff. Store in mason jars for up to 3 weeks in the fridge or even make a huge batch and freeze it.

Dry

1/2 cup almond flour (you can use whole almonds and throw them into either a good blender, bullet or food processor)

1 cup your favorite nuts

1.5 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup chopped dried fruit (I like cherries, apricots or cranberries)

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

2 tbsp chia seeds

1/2 cup shredded coconut

Wet

1/4 cup coconut oil

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp pure maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 275 Fahrenheit, in a large bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients

2. Melt the coconut oil and stir in the sweeteners and vanilla

3. Toss wet and dry ingredients together

4. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, spread out the granola at about 1/2 inch thickness

5. Bake for about 40 minutes or until lightly browned 6. Let cool for at least an hour, then break into chunks.
