15 MINUTE HEALTHY (AND TASTY) GRANOLA RECIPE
The best part about this recipe, aside from it being absolutely delicious, is that it only takes 15 minutes to make from start to finish.
1 cup crushed almonds
3 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees – at this time I like to pop my coconut oil into the oven to melt.
Crush your almonds with a food processor or, if you want to have a lot of noisy fun, bash them while still in the bag with a solid object.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Once your coconut oil is melted, add in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
When your liquids are properly combined, add to dry ingredients, mixing until the oats are throughly coated.
Spread out mixture onto two baking sheets and pop into oven for 5 minutes. Take out, give them a toss and stick back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
You can transfer your granola to some wax paper (in an even layer) to cool, but I just leave it on the baking sheets and it seems to work fine. When the granola is cooled, store in an airtight container or jar.
This recipe is so easy to make your own…replace coconut oil, sweetener, and toppings to whatever alternative you prefer (vegetable oil, agave syrup or honey etc.), it’s so versatile!
