Honey Nut Granola

I was craving granola recently as I haven’t made it in quite some time. I love homemade granola with vanilla coconut milk. So delicious on a hot summer day for breakfast or even a healthy snack.

I started eating this about 3 times a day as something about it is so light and healthy yet delicious and fulfilling all at the same time. I go on spurts where I cannot get enough of cereal. This happens more often when summer approaches and I do not want a heavy meal.

I hope you find this just as satisfying as I do!

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups cooking oats
  • 2 cups bran flakes
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup chia seed
  • ¼ cup flax seed
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup cashews
  • ½ cup pecans
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup dried blueberries
  • ½ cup dried strawberries
  • 2 ½ cups honey
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

In a large bowl add oats, bran flakes, coconut, nuts and seeds.

Stir in honey and mix really well. Once mixed, dump mixture into a large dish; preferably a 10×15. Bake for 18 minutes. Stir mixture and bake another 18 minutes. Depending on how dark the mixture is after the second set of baking, you can bake it another 10 minutes or simply be done. I enjoy a little bit of crunch to my granola and do the three rounds of baking.

Once bake transfer granola IMMEDIATELY to container to allow to cool. If you leave granola in dish to cool down, you will have a heck of a time getting it out as the honey loves to stick to the glass.

Mmmm I love granola. I always eat a cup of granola fresh out of the oven and add a few blueberries.
