honey granola

IMG_1791

I’ve wanted to make granola for a little while and have had a few recipes saved in the “to make” pile. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to finally make it. This one isn’t a super sweet granola but it’s REALLY good. We’ve been topping our yogurt with it for breakfast almost every morning and  it’s perfect when I’m craving something to snack on in the evening.  Now that I realize how easy it is to make I’m pretty excited to add different nuts, seeds and fruit.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cups raw organic pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw organic sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 unsweetened organic coconut (shredded)
  • 1/4 coconut oil
  • 1/4cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl
  2. Whisk coconut oil, honey & vanilla-you may need to warm up the coconut oil you want it to have a smooth liquid consistency
  3. Mix dry ingredients into honey mixture in batches (would want it mixed really well)
  4. Spread on parchment lined baking sheet
  5. Bake for 20min flipping granola so it’s evenly toasted
  6. Let cool completely on pan
  7. Store in air tight container
