Ingredients and Instructions

Honey: 1 tbsp
Salt: 0.5 tsp
Cinnamon: 1 tsp
Coconut oil: 50 g
Cranberries: 20 g

- Heat the coconut oil and honey in a saucepan for about a minute so that the oil liquefy.
- Add the oats, nuts, salt, vanilla extract and cinnamon to a large bowl. Then pour honey and coconut oil over them, and mix well to combine.
- Spread oats evenly on parchment paper and bake at 150 degrees Celsius for about 15 minutes, or until lightly brown. Stir once during baking so that they bake evenly on all sides.
- Once the oats are baked, wait for them to cool completely before mixing in dried fruit, puffed rice, and other ingredients that you would like to add.
- The best part about homemade granola is that you can perfectly customize it to your taste. You can use the oats you want, the fruits you want, sweetener of your choice, you can add chocolate, coconut pieces, different nuts, you can basically play around with the mix-in to make it however you like.
- I used honey for my granola because I had it on hand. But you can also use agave syrup, maple syrup, normal sugar or if you want a really healthy version skip the sugar.
- I used coconut oil because it tastes great, but you can also use olive oil or normal butter. The downside of using butter is that granola will not last as long, so I would recommend using oil.
- You can use anything: almonds, hazelnuts, pecans …
- Dried fruits
- You can use whatever you like from bananas, raspberries, figs, cranberries …
- If the oats are stored in an airtight container at room temperature, they should last for about 2 - 3 weeks, depending on the ingredients you use.
- Homemade granola is often healthier than store-bought varieties, as you can control the amount of sugar and oil used.
- Granola can be used as a topping for yogurt, smoothie bowls, and ice cream.
- Granola can also be a ingredient in baking, such as adding it to muffins, cookies, and bread.
- You can make granola in bulk and store it for a long time, so it can be a cost-effective breakfast option.
