I recently attended a cooking class in South Florida called the Naked Bite. Chef Amber made this granola that was like WHOA. And it was the beginning of my love affair with coconut oil.
This granola rocked my world.
Easy to make, and easy to modify.
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup brown
- 1/4 cup apple juice or water
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- 1/2 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 cup chopped dates (blueberries, anything dried, ect)
The first time I made this granola, I cooked it for about 30 minutes. I like my granola crunchy so I tend to go almost an hour now. But however you prefer it, its definitely going to taste great.
You can substitute some of the ingredients; if you don’t like almonds, use walnuts. Or macadamia nuts.
My only problem is I can’t just eat one bar. Usually I scarf 2. This granola is so good you’ll have to be careful you don’t eat it all at once.
Please try this granola recipe and let me know how you liked it!
