Easy crunchy granola :)
Sooooo it's time for the first official blog post of Honey&Harmony! I figured I'd start off with a recipe for the most important meal of the day, BREAKFAST! I used to hate breakfast food believe it or not, but I think that was because I couldn't eat any of the yummy stuff like pancakes and waffles and muffins, pretty much all of the carbs HA! Here is one of my allergy friendly recipes! I am a huge fan of granola and this recipe is SUPER easy and incredibly yummy. It's the perfect thing to get a busy day of coachings, classes and rehearsals off to a great start! Here it goes!
Easy Crunchy Granola
4 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup of oil (I prefer coconut oil)
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of salt
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. In a small saucepan melt together the brown sugar, honey and oil. Slowly pour the melted mixture over the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together. It'll be super sticky! Once everything is combined, pour onto a cookie sheet that is covered with parchment paper. Spread it out evenly and press it down. Cook in the oven for 1 hour, stirring the oats around about every 15-20 minutes. Once you take it out of the oven, allow to cool down completely! This will give you super yummy chunky granola. Once it is completely cooled down and looks like one giant granola bar, break it up into pieces!
Once it is all broken up, I like to add sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and whatever else I have on hand. Enjoy on top of So Delicious Coconut milk yogurt, or as your bowl of cereal with coconut milk and fresh berries on top!
