Nutty Granola

Nothing beats homemade granola! We are loving it on top of açaí bowls and we also enjoy a healthy-size scoop of granola on top of some plain, Greek yogurt with a few handfuls of fresh berries.

When I make a batch of granola, I usually times the recipe by 5 so my kids can enjoy it and I still have enough to fill two gallon-size ziplock bags for the freezer. It’s a little bit of an afternoon project, but so worth it!!

Nutty Granola

4 cups organic old-fashioned oats

1 cup sliced almonds

3/4 cup chopped pecans

1 cup flaked coconut, sweetened or unsweetened

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon pink salt

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup honey

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats with the almonds, pecans, coconut, cinnamon, salt, and brown sugar.
  2. To the oat mixture, add the coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. Stir until the all the ingredients are well combined and there are no dry oats.
  3. Spoon the granola mixture onto a baking sheet until the mixtures goes about 1/2 way up the sides of the rims of the baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 300-degrees F for 40-45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. Store in an air tight container or ziplock bag. Granola will keep at room temperature for at least a month or in the freezer for a few months.
