I just made my first batch of homemade granola yesterday, and it is SO easy to make! Granola is something that I always want to buy in stores, but it’s hard to find a brand that doesn’t have a ton of added sugar.
This healthy homemade granola only takes about 20 minutes to make, and requires about 7 ingredients – mainly oats, almonds, pure maple syrup, flour, coconut oil, and whatever extras you want to add on (sunflower or pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, raisins, etc.) Just be sure not to overcook it, or it will lose flavor.
