Say goodbye to store-bought granola because you can now make your own using six simple pantry ingredients. Wholesome homemade granola is free from preservatives and additives.
6 cups (81 grams) rolled oats (certified gluten-free if ncessary)
1/2 cup (109 grams) mild-flavored cooking oil (such as canola or melted coconut oil)
1/2 cup (170 grams) honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cup (234 grams) of walnuts, roughly chopped (almonds work well too)
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a separate bowl, add the oil, honey, vanilla and cinnamon. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds to soften the mixture, and whisk until well-combined. Pour over dry mixture and stir to coat thoroughly.
Add in chopped walnuts and other desired seeds or nuts. Spread on a baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray and bake at 300 degrees F for 25 minutes, stirring frequently (every 10 minutes) to ensure even baking. It should be golden brown when it is done.
Add in dried fruit and coconut flakes after granola is done baking (optional).
Allow granola to cool on baking sheet—break up large pieces as needed—and store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
