Obsessed with granola but have no clue how to make it? Or you’re like me and don’t want to pay $5 for what seems like a handful of healthy granola. Well, you’re in luck. I didn’t realize how easy this treat was to make. Most of the ingredients I already had in my pantry, so it was pretty painless to whip up. And guess what? You can add in just about anything you want! Make it your own.
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
3 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp flax seed
1 cup rice puffs (I didn’t use this the first time, but a good addition)
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup coconut oil
Dried fruit of your choice (I used apples)
unsweetened coconut flakes
almond and/or vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
The list goes on…
Directions: preheat oven to 250. Mix oats, chia seeds, salt, puffs and half the coconut oil, spread out on a large baking sheet. Cook for about 25 min. Take out, stir, add in nuts, extracts, honey and cinnamon (nuts burn easily). Cook for an addition 15 min. Take out, stir, add honey, the rest of the coconut oil, and dried fruit . Cook for an additional 15 min. At about an hour total, it should come out warm and delicious. Add more honey to make it clumpier. Enjoy!
