Homemade Granola

Hey y’all! So, it’s been a while since my last post. A loooooong while. Let’s not dwell on that, though.

Homemade Granola

How has everyone been? I’m sure you’ve still been cooking/baking/eating without my posts, but maybe it’s been a leetle bit harder without ideas from me.

Homemade Granola

Here’s a recipe for homemade granola that I’ve made countless times in the past few months. It’s easy, fast, and healthy. Plus, it’s a whole lot cheaper than buying granola, so it’s budget-friendly, too. You can swap out the nuts for whatever you have on hand or add dried fruit or change up the spices. I’ve tweaked this recipe based on my taste preferences and what I normally have on hand.

I love to eat this with vanilla Greek yogurt and sliced, fresh strawberries or even just with milk, and it satisfies my cereal cravings.

Ingredients

3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
1/2 cup sliced almonds (or whole almonds, finely chopped)
1/3 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened or sweetened
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well combined. Spread the mixture on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, removing halfway to stir. Let cool completely. Enjoy with sliced fruit, Greek yogurt, or milk.
