THE BEST HOMEMADE GRANOLA

Happy Tuesday! I want to share with you a really easy recipe that can be made for a healthy + quick breakfast before you head out the door — literally the best homemade granola ever. I got this recipe from my mom, and tweaked it a little. So much better tasting than the granola you buy at the store. Trust me I’ve tried them all. Plus it’s far less expensive and contains WAY less sugar. A batch of this will last you several weeks. Just keep the granola in an air tight container. I prefer to add fresh fruit vs. dried fruit when serving over yogurt or with nut milk!

Momma Kris’ Granola

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil (I buy the liquid kind from Thrive- so much easier to bake/cook with!)
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 10 drops liquid stevia or about one droppers worth
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • ยฝ cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • ยผ cup ground flax seed

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
  2. Put oats in large mixing bowl.
  3. Melt butter in microwave then add oil, honey, stevia, flax, salt and vanilla. Stir together and then pour mixture on to oats and mix thoroughly.
  4. Pour granola onto two large rimmed baking sheets and spread in an even layer. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, stirring several times while baking (don’t forget to stir!) Keep an eye on and when its golden brown remove immediately. Nothing worse than burnt granola!
  5. Add pumpkins seed
  6. Let cool completely and enjoy!

P.S. You can buy oats and nuts in bulk at many supermarkets to save even more money! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Lauren,

    Do you stir the mixture on the plate in the oven?!

    Thanks for the recipe!! I’m excited to try it.

  2. I love your content Lauren! Especially that it covers a wide variety of topics and interests that we can all relate to. I would love to see a post on how you stay positive and deal with negativity and hate from social media and what would your advice be for other young women who feel are being bullied or criticized just for being themselves?

    Thanks!

    • I would stick with Canola or Coconut but if you try it let me know how it is:)
