Easy Cinnamon Homemade Granola

Easy Cinnamon Homemade Granola

When you buy granola from the grocery store it’s usually filled with way too much sugar and although it might be labeled as a “healthy” snack its actually a bunch of rubbish. Making your own granola is fun, super easy, it’s lower in sugar, and you can totally customize it with your own mix-ins and spices. The other day I made a cinnamon granola filled with nuts, chia seeds and oats and it turned out so lovely and made my kitchen smell incredible. The best part about this recipe is that there are really no meaurements and you can change out any of the nuts you would like. You could also add in coconut flakes or dried fruit after the granola has cooked (don’t add it before because they will burn in the oven.

Ingredients:

Oats

Raw pecans

Raw cashews

Pumpkin seeds

Chia seeds

Honey

Coconut oil

Cinnamon

salt

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Then in a bowl combine your oats, nuts and seeds then drizzle over just enough melted coconut oil to lightly coat them. Add in honey to sweeten to your taste then mix until everything is well combined. Spread over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt and as much cinnamon as you prefer. Cook for 20-25 min or until nuts and oats have started to brown and crisp up. Remove from oven, cool completely and store in a glass jar.

 

*Note: if your granola does not cool completely before you put it in the jar it will not stay crunchy!*
