Just like I promised. Yet another granola recipe.
Call me predictable, call me obsessed, I just know what I like, and right now, I am liking granola. A lot.
This recipe is courtesy of my boyfriend’s mom. When I tried her granola, I wanted the recipe right away. Which is totally unlike me. I am not one to ask for recipes unless I know that I’m going to be making it at least 5 times.
And I predict this granola recipe to be a regular in my breakfast rotation.
I have never made sweet and salty granola before, but now that I have, I don’t want to try anything else. And the CLUSTERS that this granola makes. Gahh, I can eat them all day long.
Now don’t expect to see many more granola recipes in the near future. I’m not sure if I will get tired of this one any day soon.
Healthy Sweet and Salty Coconut Vanilla Bean Granola made with coconut oil, raisins and almonds. One of my favourite breakfast recipes.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
- 1/3 cup raisins
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp coarse salt
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 2 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 Tbsp vanilla bean paste
Preheat the oven to 300˚F
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, almonds, coconut, raisins, cinnamon and salt.
In a small microwave safe bowl, heat the honey until melted, around 20 seconds. Mix in the coconut oil until it is melted. Mix in the vanilla until fully combined
Pour the wet ingredients in with the oat mixture until the mixture is evenly coated.
Spread evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until slightly brown.
Allow to cool completely, then break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
