This granola can be served with yogurt topped with sliced bananas or chopped apple and it is also great as a cereal. You can use it to make a healthy snack like Energy Bites as well.
It is such a simple recipe and so inexpensive to make. It can be very expensive to buy a healthy (sugar free) granola, so why not make your own at home for a fraction of the cost.
Remember, healthy eating doesn’t have to be complicated (or expensive), it just has to taste delicious!
3 cups rolled oats
2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1½ cups raw pumpkins seeds
1/2 cup chopped raw almonds
1/3 cup raw honey (or pure maple syrup)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 heaping tablespoon cinnamon powder (pumpkin spice would also be delicious)
Optional additions: When the granola is cooled, add in your favorite unsweetened dried fruit like goji berries, raisons or cranberries.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients.
In a small bowl, add the honey and coconut oil. Melt in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir melted oil and honey into the dry ingredients keep mixing together until fully coated.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and evenly spread out the granola. Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes, until golden brown. Checking frequently to ensure it doesn’t burn.
