I’m pretty sure we go through granola at our house faster than any other family in America. We eat it as breakfast cereal, on other breakfast cereal, sprinkled on yogurt, or just by the handfuls. My favorite recipe for it was adapted from a Bread Beckers recipe that I started using years ago. It’s simple, natural, and oh so delicious! You can use the basic recipe and then add your favorite extras.
- 1 C. coconut oil
- 1 C. honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 8 C. rolled oats
- 2 C. whatever extras you like (chopped nuts, seeds, coconut flakes, dried fruit)
Combine coconut oil, honey, and vanilla in a saucepan. Mix well, and heat until slightly bubbly. While that’s heating, combine oats and extras in a large bowl. Pour honey mixture over the oat mixture. Stir and toss until it’s mixed well. Pour oat mixture on two lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, stir, spread out again, and bake 5 more minutes. Let granola cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
Yum! Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
