Having snacks on hand that are quick to make, eat, and are portable are always on my lookout recipe list. We are spending more time outside thanks to Spring arriving promptly. I looked up a recipe for granola and at the store a few weeks ago I decided to pick up supplies for granola.
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix in a bowl:
- 3 cups of rolled oats
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
- 2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds (add more or less as desired)
- 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Combine together (this part may need heating up on the stove-top) :
- 3 tablespoons of agave syrup
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pour the wet ingredients in to the dry and mix together until all pieces are thoroughly coated.
Spread the mix on a flat baking tray.
Place in over and bake for 15 minutes. Stir. Bake for about 15 more minutes, or until golden.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Slightly stir the cooling granola. This will help the granola cool in a more chunky formation.
Enjoy alone or with yogurt after the granola is completely cooled.
