I have been trying to eat healthier and adding yogurt to my morning has been great – except that I needed something with a little crunch on it. Rather than go buy a bunch of granola, I decided to make my own. And its delicious!

You can easily substitute things out – If you don’t want to use pecans and almonds, use whatever nuts you like best. Dislike chocolate? Don’t use any. Want a different flavor? Use pecan syrup or hickory syrup. Add any dried fruits you like. It really has lots of ways to dress it up and make it your own.

  • 4 cup old fashioned oats (don't use quick oats)
  • 1 1/2 cup pecans and almonds, mixed and chopped.
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted.
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cup dried fruits (opt)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Put all your dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir a few times.

  3. Add your coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir to make sure all your dry ingredients are coated.

  4. Pour onto your baking sheet and spread evenly.

  5. Bake 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway. If you want bigger clumps of granola, use a large spatula and flip large sections carefully.
