I have always loved granola, however I have not always loved the nutrition facts that come along with it! I found this recipe that I could make from home that is pretty easy and healthy to make! I have made a batch once a week now for several weeks. Evening snack or adding it to yogurt- this healthy granola is great!
Healthy Granola Recipe
3 Cups of Oats
1 Cup of Chopped Almonds
2 Tablespoons of Honey
¼ Cup of Olive Oil
¼ Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Optional: 1 Cup Coconut, 1 Cup Dried Cranberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix oats and almonds in a large mixing bowl. In a microwave safe bowl combine: oil, sugar and cinnamon. Microwave until sugar begins to dissolve (about 30 seconds). See picture above.
Mix wet ingredients together well before adding to dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well.
Then, spread mixture out on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes mixing several times during backing. Transfer to bowl to cool before storing.
*If you add coconut it is added to the dry mix of ingredients. If you add cranberries add it to the granola after it has been cooked.
