Homemade granola is easy and fun, and can be customized based on what you have at home.  With some simple base ingredients, I’ll show you how to make what I like to call, “use what you got granola”.



3 Cups Rolled Oats

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1/3 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey

Plus any mix in you desire!


Preheat oven to 250 degrees fahrenheit.

Add the oats, salt, and any other dry ingredients to a mixing bowl.  Mix well.

Melt together the coconut oil, syrup and any nut butter or liquid you desire.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry, and mix thoroughly.

Press onto a baking sheet in an even layer.

Place pan in oven and set a timer for 15 minutes.  After 15 minutes, gently stir the granola, and cook for another 15 minutes.  After that, set your timer for 5 minute increments until the cooked granola feels dry and starts to brown.

Let cool completely before storing in a bag or jar.


*Store on countertop or in pantry for a few days.  Or place in freezer to keep longer and eat straight out of freezer for nice and crunchy granola every time!
