Granola – Healthy & Homemade

I love granola, but I hate the high price and the high fat & sugar. I’ve come up with a version that is so yummy, inexpensive and healthy!

1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)

1/2 cup organic pure maple syrup

4 cups oats

2 cups unsweetened coconut

2 cups coarsely chopped almonds or pecans

1 cup sunflower seeds

1 1/2 cups dried fruit (apricots, cherries, blueberries) optional

1 cup raisins

1 cup cranberries

Whisk together oil and maple syrup, set aside. Toss oats, coconut, almonds and sunflowers together in a large bowl. Ad the oil mixture and stir until well combined. Pour onto 2 baking sheets and place in a 325 oven for approx 25 min. Turn the mixture approx every 5 – 8 min so it doesn’t burn. Remove from oven, let cool, stirring occasionally. Add in your raisins and cranberries and other dried fruit. Store in an airtight container.

Not only is this great with almond milk, but is a great snack on plain yogurt with some fresh fruit added or simple as is! Hope you and your family enjoy it!
