Homemade granola is such a great breakfast food and is also really good for a quick snack with yogurt and fresh fruit. It's a snap to make and stores really well. I love this recipe as you can make so many changes and additions to it and it will turn out amazing every time. There are a ton of flavour combinations that you can use, including: dried fruit such as, cranberries, apples, apricots, blueberries, raisins, and cherries. Nuts such as, almonds, pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts, cashews, and macadamia nuts are all delicious.
2 cups oats
1/2 cup almonds (whole, slivered or sliced)
1 cup coconut
1/3 cup wheat germ
2 tbsp flax
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment.
In a mediums sized bowl, combine the oats, coconut, almonds, wheat germ, flax and cinnamon.
In a small bowl, whisk together the honey and vegetable oil. Pour over the oat mixture and mix well.
Pour the granola mixture onto the prepared pan and spread out.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.
Let cool before breaking up the granola.
Store in an airtight container.
