Cinnamon Granola

My house is smelling delicious today!  I love the smell of baking cinnamon.  I made a couple batches of this cinnamon granola this morning in order to perfect the recipe.  That means I’ll be eating this all week!  No complaints here!

Cinnamon Granola

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup sliced almonds

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup halved or chopped pecans

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

2 cups old fashioned oats

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Heat coconut oil and honey together in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Once melted, remove from heat.  Stir in nuts, seeds, and oats until everything is coated evenly in oil and honey.
  • Add in vanilla and cinnamon and stir thoroughly.
  • Pour mixture onto a baking pan where the mixture can spread out into a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from oven and stir occasionally as the granola cools to prevent it from sticking to the pan.
  • Once the granola has cooled completely, store in an airtight glass container.

Notes:

This recipe is also great without the cinnamon, but I prefer the cinnamon version.  The granola is delicious plain or over unsweetened yogurt.

  1. I just made the granola with my 10 month old nephew Nathan “assisting”. It came delicious. When his mom came to pick him up, I sent her home with a small bag of it. A nice healthy snack. Thank you
