I adore granola – nutty, crunchy, sweet, and salty – what’s not to like? Except I find that most homemade and store bought granola is packed with calories, fat, and sugar. Not the best combination since most of us reach for granola as a “healthier” choice. So for the past few weeks, I have been working on creating my own homemade granola that cuts back on some of the sugar, fat, and calories. This has around 1/3 less calories than traditional granola and can be customized any way you like. Personally I like to add flax, chia, and almonds to pack in the protein and fiber; but any nuts or seeds will work. I also purposefully leave out the dried fruit (packed with calories and sugar) and opt for adding fresh fruit instead.

Instructions

(Hide Photos)
1

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Lay the oats out on the baking sheet and toast for 8-10 minutes, shaking occasionally. You can skip this step but I love the flavor the toasted oats add to the granola. If you using raw almonds, toast them as well.

3

Meanwhile, melt the butter/coconut oil and stir in the honey. Add the almond extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt and mix well.

4

Add the toasted oats, flax seeds, chia seeds, and almonds to the honey mixture. Mix until everything is coasted.

5

Spread into a thin layer on the baking sheet. Cook for 20-30 minutes until beginning to brown. (I like mine “almost burnt” so I cook it closer to 35 minutes.) Take out and let cool. It will crisp up while cooling. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
