If found this recipe online, which is where I find all my recipes lol! As follows;

Healthy Granola Recipe

HOMEMADE GRANOLA INGREDIENTS:

To make this homemade granola recipe, you will need:

  • Old-fashioned oats: Also known as rolled oats.  If making this recipe gluten-free, be sure to double-check that the brand you buy is certified GF.
  • Nuts: I almost always use slivered almonds in my granola.  But feel free to replace them with your favorite nuts or seeds (like pepitas or sunflower seeds).
  • Chia seeds: I like sprinkling these in for extra omega-3s, but feel free to omit them if you prefer.
  • Melted coconut oil: Or your preferred kind of oil.
  • Honey: Or maple syrup.
  • Ground cinnamon, fine sea salt and vanilla extract: To flavor the granola.
  • Flaky coconut: Or you can use shredded coconut, or omit the coconut altogether.

INGREDIENTS


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 350°F.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together oats, almonds, chia seeds, cinnamon and sea salt until evenly combined.
  3. In a separate measuring cup, stir together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract until combined.  Pour the coconut oil mixture into the oats mixture, and stir until evenly combined.
  4. Spread the granola out evenly on the prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes, stirring once halfway through.  Then remove from the oven, add the coconut, and give the mixture a good stir.  Bake for 5 more minutes, until the granola is lightly toasted and golden.
  5. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire baking rack.  Let cool until the granola reaches room temperature.  Then stir in the dried fruit, chocolate chips or any other optional add-ins you might prefer.
  6. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
