We’ve tried several versions of granola around our house, but I think we’ve found a new favorite (for the time being at least). It’s so easy that Jas has been helping me make a double batch every week because we’ve all been going through it so quickly. As is most granola, this recipe is ripe for experimentation, so have fun with it!

Jas has trouble with the “l” sound, so at our house, this is called “gran-ona.”

Yummy granona
Barely adapted from Annie’s Eats

4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup pecans, roughly chopped
1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1 cup ground flax seed
8 tbsp coconut oil
6 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Combine the oats, nuts, and flax in a large mixing bowl. In a saucepan, combine the coconut oil and honey. Heat until the oil and honey have combined. Stir in the vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Pour the coconut oil and honey mixture over the dry ingredients and have your two-year-old stir well to coat. Spread the mixture on a large baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove to stir well, and return it to the over for another 30 or minutes. You may need a bit more time – you want it to crisp up and your house to smell amazing. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before eating or storing.
