Homemade Granola Recipe

Jeez - could I be any crunchier!?! But I swear this is a great recipe... 

Homemade Granola with Coconut Oil

{makes about 10 cups}

4 C rolled oats {I used Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free}

1 C chopped raw almonds or walnuts or pecans (or a combo of all)

½ C chopped dried fruit (figs or dates or raisins)

½ C coconut oil

¼ C honey

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.  In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, cinnamon + salt. Since the coconut oil is usually in a solid state, heat up the coconut oil and the honey in a pan on a very low flame until both have liquified. It makes blending much easier! Add coconut oil/honey mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients (oats, nuts, spices) and stir until evenly coated. Spread the granola mixture on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes flip and bake for another 2 minutes. Once out of the oven and cooled, return to the large bowl and combine with the dried fruit. Store in an airtight container or mason jars. It should hold for about 2-3 weeks. Enjoy!
