Vanilla Almond Granola

I really enjoy making my own granola since its soooo easy and you can control all the ingredients! This is one of my favorite recipes for a sweet, sticky and crunchy granola exploding with vanilla and almond flavours! Healthy, homemade granola is so fast and easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • IMG_40062 and 1/2 cups (200g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup (100g) slivered almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt (about 1/8 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 cup (120ml) pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 Raw Honey
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Toss the oats, almonds, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the maple syrup and coconut oil together until combined. Whisk in the almond and vanilla extracts. Pour over the oats and toss to coat. Make sure all of the oats are moistened.

Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Allow granola to cool completely – the air will help the granola obtain a crunchy texture. Granola remains fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
