Coconut Oil Granola

I am a simple granola kinda girl. Of course I love nuts and craisins and all the goodies that are usually included in granola. However, when I want a bowl of greek yogurt and berries with crunchy granola... I prefer the granola to be simple and not overly sweet. If you find yourself agreeing with me then this granola is for you! It is made with a few simple ingredients and comes together really quickly and easily.


3 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
2 T. honey
2 T. pure maple syrup
Mix-ins of your choice (nuts, toasted coconut, cinnamon, craisins, etc.)

Preheat the oven to 250ºF.

Place the oats and any mix-ins in a large mixing bowl. *If you are using raisins or any other dried fruit, wait to add until the baking process is almost completed.

In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, honey and maple syrup. Pour over the oats and stir to combine. Spread the mixture on a non-stick baking sheet.

Bake for 1 hour (stirring the granola every 20 minutes). Remove pan from oven. Do not stir. Allow granola to cool. Then break into chunks and store in an air-tight container or ziploc.
