I have been wanting to make granola for a long time! It sure tastes delicious with some almond milk or with some greek yogurt. I have been looking for a recipe that doesn't call for high amounts of sugar, but still tastes good and I found just that! I used Sally's Baking Addiction Vanilla Almond Granola. I didn't add almonds to mine simply because I haven't bought any, but I think that it would be great to add.
2 1/2 cups of oats
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of maple syrup ( I used organic maple syrup-Kirkland brand)
1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon of almond extract
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Toss oats, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Almonds are optional. In another bowl whisk together maple syrup, coconut oil, almond and vanilla extract. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Mix together well until all the oats are covered. Pour it onto a lined cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 45 minutes. Make sure to stir the granola a few times while cooking. Let the granola completely cool when done. Enjoy!
