Honey Almond Granola

I love granola and have been wanting to make a batch. I found this quick and easy recipe for honey almond granola. With only a few ingredients, it’s the perfect introduction to try making homemade granola. I’ve been enjoying it as “cereal” in the morning with sliced bananas. I also like to top yogurt with granola and this one makes for big clumps, so it’s perfect for snacking!

Honey Almond Granola | Join Us, Pull up a Chair
1 cup whole almonds, divided
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar)
1/3 cup honey
3 Tbsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.

Add half of the almonds into a food processor and pulse until they are finely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl. Chop the other half of the almonds until they are pieces, pour into the same bowl. To the bowl, add the oats, salt, sugar and stir to combine.

In a small microwaveable bowl, heat the coconut oil and honey for 40 seconds and stir until the coconut oil has become a liquid. Add in the vanilla extract. Pour over the oats and stir until the mixture is evenly coated. Transfer to your prepared baking sheet and spread out to thin layer. Bake for 10 minutes and then stir. Repeat cooking and stirring until your granola is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to completely cool. Break granola into clusters and store in an airtight container.
