Homemade granola is one of the easiest things to make and is a fantastic snack. Have it with milk for breakfast, put it on yogurt or simply eat it alone. It’s versatile, delicious and is the perfect thing to take along for summer hikes or camping trips. Enjoy!

Makes: 8 cups 

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 20 minutes

Total time: 1 hour


Ingredients:

4 cups old fashioned oats

¼ tsp. cinnamon 

¼ cup cacao powder

2 T whole wheat flour 

½ tsp. sea salt, divided 

⅓ cup almond butter

⅓ cup coconut oil, melted

½ cup honey 

2 tsp. vanilla extract 

⅓ cup mini chocolate chips

Directions:

STEP 1: Line 12x18-inch baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

STEP 2: In a large bowl combine oats, cinnamon, cacao powder, wheat flour and ¼ tsp. sea salt in a large bowl and mix together with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. 

STEP 3: Add almond butter, melted coconut oil, honey and vanilla to the oat mixture and mix well until fully incorporated. 

STEP 4: Dump granola onto parchment-lined baking sheet and spread out evenly. Firmly press down granola into the baking sheet with the back of a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. 

STEP 5: Place the baking sheet in the oven on the second from the bottom rack and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Check during the last few minutes to make sure granola doesn’t burn. 

STEP 6: After baking, immediately sprinkle mini chocolate chips and the remaining ¼ tsp. sea salt onto granola and let the granola cool on the baking sheet for about 30 minutes. 

STEP 7: Once the granola is cooled, break apart into chunks with your fingers and store in an airtight container at room temperature. Enjoy!

Variations:

• Add ¼ to ⅓ cup coconut sugar for sweeter taste

• Use peanut butter instead of almond butter 

• Add ½ to 1 cup coconut flakes or your favorite nut 

• Use maple syrup instead of honey
