Grain-Free Granola


Store-bought granola is often loaded with sugar, unlike this super-satisfying homemade version. Although the fat content might seem high, it’s coming from the almonds and coconut, which provide protein and fiber. Plus, since it’s low in sugar, you don’t have to worry about an energy crash an hour later! This recipe is for 8 servings, so it’s perfect for making ahead of time. Just store in an airtight container and scoop some out whenever you want to add a bit of crunch to your yogurt or oatmeal.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  2. Pour the coconut oil into a small microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds, until melted, or melt in a small pan on the stovetop over low heat. Stir in the vanilla and honey.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the coconut flakes, almonds, and salt. Drizzle with the coconut oil mixture and stir to coat.

  6. Let cool completely before removing from the baking sheet.
