Homemade Granola

I love granola, especially on top of my greek yogurt. It’s really good for breakfast or a snack. I thought I would try making it myself and it actually turned out rather tasty! ┬áSuper easy & most of the ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

Easy Homemade Granola

2 cups rolled oats (old-fashioned)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup of sunflower seeds

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

In a large bowl, toss the oats with the cinnamon and salt.

In a medium bowl, stir together the oil, honey, brown sugar, and vanilla. Whisk until completely combined.

Pour the honey mixture over the oats mixture and use your hands to combine them: Gather up some of the mixture in each hand and make a fist. Repeat until all of the oats are coated with the honey mixture.

Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread it out evenly, but leave a few clumps here and there for texture

Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven and use a metal spatula to lift and flip the granola. Sprinkle the almonds & sunflower seeds over the granola and return the baking sheet to the oven.

Bake for 5 more minutes, then remove from the oven. Let cool completely. Store in airtight container.
