Tasty Tuesday: No Fuss, Homemade Granola

granolaI have always been intimidated by making my own granola. It seemed like a lot of work, a lot of stopping and stirring, and a lot of ways mine would turn out burnt!

My good friend Annie shared her recipe with me and YOU GUYS! It’s amazing! It’s super easy and pretty much fool proof. Not to mention it makes your house smell AMAZING while it’s cooking.

I love granola mixed with some Greek yogurt in the mornings or as an afternoon snack. My husband and kids love to eat it by the handfuls! We sprinkle it on  fresh fruit like strawberries, apples, grapes, and bananas and eat it as an after dinner “dessert”

Granola Recipe:

5 Cups Rolled  Oats, Oldfashioned

2/3 Cup Olive Oil (You could probably substitute melted coconut oil)

1/2 Cup honey (this is for drier granola–if you want it more sticky use 1 cup)

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/2 cup nuts (pecans or cashews are my favorite, but any kind works)

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup raisins or craisins

2 small scoops flax seed (about 1/4 cup)

Other add ins: almonds and sunflower seeds

Mix all ingredients together until evenly coated. Spread on baking sheet. Bake at 350 For 7 minutes. Stir and bake for 7 minutes more.

That’s it! Super easy & delicious!
