Granola

Seriously you don’t need to search for another granola recipe ever! This is definitely the best granola. And it’s super flexible, so you can add or delete or substitute as you wish. It’s always a huge hit with everyone. And start to finish time is only half an hour.

Go-to Granola

(Inspired from Lovely Little Kitchen)

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup almonds (or any kind of nuts. I love pine nuts too. Or leave it out)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil (or any kind of oil you prefer)
  • 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup works really well too)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F).

Coarsely chop the almonds – you’ll have different sized pieces, which is a good thing.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, chopped almonds, toasted coconut, salt and brown sugar. Keep aside.

On the stove top, combine the coconut oil and honey in a small pan on medium heat and keep stirring until mixed together well. Add the vanilla extract and mix through. Remove from heat.

Pour the oil mixture over the oats and mix completely until evenly coated.

Spread the mixture evenly over a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven, give the mixture a stir and spread again into an even layer and return to oven for another 5 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Remove from oven.

Spread the granola in an even layer to cool.

Store in an airtight container. I actually can’t say how long it’ll keep because it disappears almost as soon as it’s made!

We love it with yogurt, jam and honey!
