Sick of store bought granola? I was definitely sick of reading labels and seeing so many forms of sugar and additives! I came up with this recipe and everyone who has made it raves about it! Crunchy and delicious; perfect on top of a smoothie bowl, a yogurt fruit bowl, or just as a snack!

Ingredients
  1. 4 cups organic gluten-free rolled oats
  2. 1 cup nuts/seeds (I use slivered raw almonds, chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and whole raw almonds)
  3. 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
  4. 1 tbsp cinnamon
  5. 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (optional)
  6. Dash of salt
  7. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  8. 1/4 cup raw organic honey
  9. 3 tbsp organic pure maple syrup
  10. 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  11. Note: If you like sweeter granola, add 1 tbsp more honey or maple syrup
  12. Optional: 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar
  13. Optional: 1/2 cup dried fruit
Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. 2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or baking sheet liner
  3. 3. In a large bowl combine organic oats, nuts/seeds, and flaxseed meal, with cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and a dash of salt (if adding brown sugar, mix it into the bowl too)
  4. 4. In a pan on the stove combine oil, organic honey, organic vanilla extract, and organic pure maple syrup, bring to a boil
  5. 5. Once boiling, pour over mixture in the bowl and mix thoroughly
  6. 6. Pour onto baking sheet and bake at 350, stirring occasionally, until slightly brown
  7. 7. Let cool, and store in air-tight container
Note
  1. I generally add the dried fruit as I eat. When mixed in during baking, and then stored I have found that the dried fruit gets hard after about a week. If you are serving the granola right away, feel free to mix them in.
LEXI'S TIP
  1. Add one egg white to the entire mixture, make sure it's mixed in extremely well, this makes the granola extremely chunky and stick together in clusters
