Making your own homemade granola is insanely easy. The ingredient list on a lot of store bought granolas looks more like a candy bar than breakfast. They are often loaded with sugar, too much...

  • ⅓ cup whole wheat pastry flour (see Ann’s Tip)
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly butter. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together oats, flour, almonds, walnuts, coconut flakes, salt and cinnamon, if using. Stir in maple syrup and melted butter until the oats are completely coated. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, turning the oats often for even browning. Granola can burn quickly, so keep a close eye on it! Once golden, allow to cool completely then stir in dried fruit. Eat with milk or over yogurt. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
