Kristal's Homemade Granola Recipe

Kristal's Homemade Granola Recipe

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut oil (if you hate coconut or can't find it, use walnut or canola oil. I get my coconut oil at Whole Foods)

3/4 cup agave nectar (This can be found at Whole Foods or ordered from Fresh Direct. We don't have real supermarkets where I live so those are my only choices. You can also use REAL - Not Aunt Jemima - maple syrup or brown rice syrup. I hear honey burns, but haven't tried it.)

2 cups rolled oats (not the quick cooking kind)

1/4 cup flax seeds, ground

1/2 cup unsalted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1/2 cup unsalted, raw slivered almonds*

1/2 cup raw pecan halves, chopped

1/2 cup raw walnut halves, chopped

1/2 cup raw coconut flakes (optional)

1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt (not iodized. yuck.)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

*Regarding the nuts, I've put the ones I like in there, but you can pretty much swap in anything you like. A word of warning though, I splurged on macadamias one time and it wasn't worth it, so save yourself the cash and take my word for it.
