This morning I wanted to have some yogurt for breakfast but I ran out of granola! I thought to myself, maybe I can just make my own granola! So I looked up a simple recipe to make my own granola at home!
Here’s what you’ll need:
-3 cups OLD FASHIONED oats
-1 cup of nuts of your choice
-2 tbsp chia seeds
-4 tbsp of honey or maple syrup
-3 tsp vanilla extract
-2 tsp cinnamon
-3 tbsp coconut oil
1. Preheat oven to 300 Degrees F.
2. Mix all ingredients together, put parchment paper on a baking sheet, and spread out a thin layer of the granola mixture.
3. Let it bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the granola starts to brown.
*Make sure to check the granola ever so often because it can burn easily.
Let it cool, then enjoy!
There are many fun ways that you can add this to a variety of dishes like:
Your favorite yogurt
As a topping for a baked apple
Add to muffins
Bake it in bread
Make granola bars
Eat with fruits
Roll bananas in the granola and freeze them
Add some sprinkles to a salad
Add to oatmeal for a nice crunch
Eat with mixed nuts
Place on top of a smoothie bowl or in your favorite smoothie
Your options are endless folks!
Storing your granola
You can store your freshly made granola in an airtight jar/container for up to 2 weeks long.
Or you can store in an airtight jar/container and keep in the freezer for a few months. When ready to eat it, just leave it on the counter to defrost overnight.
And there you have it! Homemade Granola that’s so easy to prepare!
