I am always looking for a healthy version of granola. This recipe is so much healthier than the store bought kind, which usually contains a lot of sugar. I found this recipe on Sally's Baking Addiction blog and modified it slightly by using honey instead of maple syrup (just because it's what I had at the time) and adding unsweetened coconut.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Toss the oats, almond, coconut and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside.
3. In a medium bowl whisk the maple syrup and coconut oil together until combined. WHisk in the almond and vanilla extracts. Pour over the oats and toss to coat. Make sure all of the oats are moistened.
4. Spread onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Allow granola to cool completely - the air will help the granola obtain its crunchy texture.
