Make Your Own Granola

Are you trying to eat whole foods or just eat healthier foods with natural ingredients and less sugar, dairy, and wheat? If so, make your own granola! You can eat it as a snack just like it is, or you can put it in a bowl with a little almond milk or coconut milk and eat it like cereal. And you can use different kinds of nuts, seeds, and dried fruits in this recipe in order to change it up and keep it interesting!

It’s very easy to make your own granola. At least the kind I make is! However, my granola is a loose granola which means nothing sticks it together. I like it this way because its more like cereal.  At the same time, you can make limitless variations with the following recipe.

What you will need to make your own granola:

Mix all ingredients except oil. First, toss with 4 tbsp. oil. Next, bake at 350 degrees. Stir every 5 minutes until toasted and golden throughout. Don’t over-cook or your fruit will scorch. Let cool and store in an air-tight container. Perfectly simple!
