Easy Homemade Granola
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup slivered almonds
1/3 – 1/2 cup Kelapo coconut oil
1/3 cup agave syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup dried fruit (I used raisins and pineapple)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix together all dry ingredients except for the dried fruits. In a small, separate bowl mix together the coconut oil and agave. Pour the coconut oil mixture over the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined.
Prepare a baking sheet by lightly spraying with Kelapo coconut oil nonstick spray. Spread granola evenly across large cookie sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Stir twice throughout cooking process so granola is evenly browned. Let cool. Mix in any dried fruits and enjoy! Store in an airtight container.
Some of Kelapo’s favorite mix-ins: raisins, dried pineapple, other dried fruits, pumpkin seeds, almonds, sunflower seeds, honey, pure maple syrup (instead of agave), dark chocolate chips, shredded coconut, your favorite nuts, wheat germ, nutmeg, vanilla extract
