Granola & greek yogurt is one of my favorite breakfasts so I've been working on perfecting my homemade granola recipe. It's surprisingly easy to make, and I love that I can customize it with whatever nuts, dried fruit, or spices are available.
Here is the basic recipe I used most recently:
8 cups rolled oats
1 ½ cups flax seeds
1 cup ground flax seeds
1 ½ cups coconut
2 cup almonds (or other nuts), chopped
1 ½ teaspoons salt
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup maple syrup
3/4 cup honey
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325 and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine the oats, nuts, cocunut and seeds in a big bowl.
In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together the brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil, cinnamon, salt and vanilla and bring to a boil. Then pour over the dry ingredients, and mixing to coat the oats
Spread the mixture out evenly on the baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven until crispy and toasted, about 20 minutes. Stir once halfway through. If you want to add raisins or dried cranberries, stir them in after the granola has cooled.
Store the granola in airtight container.
