Homemade Granola is one of the easiest things to make at home! Throw all your fixings in a bowl, add the sweetener of choice with some butter, and bake it low and slow. It makes the best topping for yogurt, a healthy snack and is delicious eaten like cereal!
Servings: 14 (about ½ cup)
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 2 cups mixed nuts of choice, my favorite is almonds, walnuts and pistachios
- ½ cup sunflower seeds
- ½ cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- ½ cup salted butter
- ⅓ cup honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 250°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts, seeds and coconut.
In a small pot, combine the butter, honey, and cinnamon over low heat. Heat until butter is melted completely.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
Add the wet ingredients to the oat mixture and thoroughly mix it together.
Spread out granola as evenly as possible on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake granola for 1 hour and 15 minutes, mixing it and turning it half way through baking.
Let cool completely on baking sheet before storing. Granola will crisp up more as it cools.
Store in air tight container, jar or zip top bag and keep in pantry.
I use raw nuts and seeds.
