Homemade Coconut Granola


Granola is a very simple quick breakfast / snack that we really enjoy. It's so simple to make that once we started making it, we weren't sure why we were buying expensive granola with tons of sugar and preservatives. 

This recipe for granola is super easy and you can play around with the ingredients based on your preferences, you can add dry fruits, banana, yogurt or homemade almond milk while eating it.

Ingredients

  • 150 g rolled oats (not instant)
  • 50 g coconut flakes

  • 80 ml maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla pod
  • 1/4 cup dry fruits
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Method

  •  Preheat the oven to 175° C (350° F)
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl (oats, coconut, nuts, sugar & salt. not the dry fruits)
