There is something so versatile about granola! A snack, breakfast cereal, yogurt topping, chia pudding topping, fruit crumble topping, the list goes on. AND there are so many different add-ins you can use to make it your personal fave.
It's been a wonderful college-girl food for me, because it's an easy fix-ahead breakfast for mornings that come super early.
This one is a great basic granola recipe that I based off of Anthropologie's blog- http://blog.anthropologie.com/post/96713945259
- 4 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1 1/2 cups almonds
- 1/4 cup pecans (because that was all I had left in my kitchen, but feel free to sub some of the almonds for pecans!)
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup + 1 tsp of honey
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 cup dried, chopped figs (or any combination of dried fruits- I used figs, prunes, cranberries, and raisins)
- 3 Tbsp chia seeds (or flax seeds)
How to Make It:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients but dried fruit and chia seeds in a bowl. Spread the mixture evenly on a cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring half way through. Take it out and let it cool 10-15 minutes. Stir in dried fruit and chia seeds, and enjoy!!
Happy Thursday, all. :)
