About this Recipe
Made with a handful of simple ingredients, this homemade granola is great for a midday snack or as a pick-me-up during a long day at work.
Not only is this granola a great source of omega-3 fatty acids from walnuts, it also contains fiber, antioxidants, manganese, protein, and phosphorous from the rolled oats, making it a great source of nutrients.
2 cups whole rolled oats
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup coconut flakes
2 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
¼ cup maple syrup
2 Tbsp. creamy almond butter
⅓ cup dried cranberries
Step by Step Instructions
Preheat the oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the oats, walnuts, coconut flakes, cinnamon, and salt. Drizzle in the coconut oil and maple syrup, and add the almond butter. Stir until combined.
Scoop the granola onto the baking sheet and press the mixture down to about 1-inch thickness. This will encourage clumping.
Bake for 15 minutes then rotate the pan halfway. Use a fork to gently break some of the granola apart. Bake for 15 minutes more, or until golden brown. Sprinkle with dried cranberries. Let it cool before serving.
