Soley Granola

I would actually have to put the spoon and bowl down long enough write a post about how wonderful this granola is.  The recipe comes from my good friend Kristen, previously called Mrs. S.  {I did this because I don't always know if people are okay with names or photos in my blog, therefor I disguise and/or don't add photos}.

Back to the granola.  Chocked full of good stuff.

5C       Oats
1 C      Mixed Nuts (Pecans & Walnuts)
1 C      Almonds
1/4C    Flax Seed
1/2C    Brown Sugar
1/3C    Honey
1/3C    Maple Syrup
1/3C    Coconut Oil
1 tsp    Vanilla
1 tsp    Almond Extract
2/3 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Heat oven to 325 degrees.  Place oats, nuts, flax seed in baking pan (I used half sheet cake ~ worked wonderful)

Melt coconut oil; mix honey syrup, vanilla, almond extract, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt.  Melt in microwave.

Pour over oats and nuts ~ mix well

Bake 15 minutes ~ Mix and bake 15 additional minutes, repeat until desired brownness.  (I mixed once and baked 15 minutes twice. 

So yummy! 

{Sorry the format isn't all that and you can't print a recipe card from here and photos certainly aren't food photography.}


  1. Yum! we are so anti* cereal around here that I forget about homemade granola! I need to make some again soon!

    *my kids would eat sugar cereal every single meal but obviously that isn't going to happen and the 'health' food versions are still full of things we shouldn't be eating on a regular basis. Besides, we are all hungry 30 minutes after eating it!

    1. I love the fact that there is cinnamon, flax & nuts oh and coconut heart healthy. But I think one must be careful and not eat too much! :)

  2. I'd love a recipe for granola bars. Know of a goodie? :)


Thanks for making my day!
