Yummy Nutty Homemade Granola

homemade nutty granola

I am a recent lover of granola!  I am by no means an expert or connoisseur.   But I love this simple recipe.  It doesn’t get super crunchy.  It’s more like cereal, but I like that I can mix it with yogurt or eat it with milk.

Yummy Nutty Granola

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup assorted nuts (I like a mixture of almonds and walnuts)
3/4 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup real maple syrup (could use honey as well)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F .
  2. Melt coconut oil and mix with maple syrup.
  3. Combine all of the ingredients, mixing well to coat.
  4. Spread on a baking sheet and bake until golden, about 30 minutes.
I have also baked this at a lower temperature of 300 F. It doesn’t get as brown and is way more like a cereal. 
I love eating it with my homemade yogurt and a drizzle of honey!

    We eat a ton of granola on homemade plain yogurt. My go-to recipe for a couple of years now is the Meal Makeover Moms’ granola recipe – http://mealmakeovermoms.com/recipes/breakfast/toasty-o-granola/

      I really like meal makeover moms. They have a burrito filling recipe that is great! I’ll have to take a look at their granola. Thanks for sharing.
