Honey Almond Granola

 


    Jax and I have been having a lot of fun playing around with granola lately.  It is nice to have a helper around when it comes to eating it.  This stuff is addictive!  Matt won't be much help with this one, as he doesn't eat nuts.  Which is fine, it's more for me and Jax!!




Honey Almond Granola

Ingredients:

2 cups old fashioned oats
2 T almond butter
2 T coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sliced amonds

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.  Spread oats on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, or until toasted.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together almond butter, honey, vanilla and cinnamon.
  3. Stir in warm toasted oats and sliced almonds, then spread on rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Drop oven to 250 F. Bake for 20 minutes, stir then bake for 20 minutes more.
  5. Cool completely then store in an airtight container.

    1. Yes it is! My two year old has really taken a liking to granola in his yogurt, so we have been having fun trying different combinations. But I want to keep it small and fairly simple (and healthy) for him!

  5. Oh gosh I think I'll have to try this! I have Coeliac Disease though so will have to make it gluten free, but it's totally possible :D #blogfair
