Honey Almond Granola

Warning:  This granola is highly addictive!  I don’t know what it is, but I can never stop with just one handful.  Usually I’ll be munching away and half the batch is gone before I even realize how much I’ve eaten.  Oh well, it’s healthy right?  When you bake this granola be sure to press the mixture down firmly into the baking sheet and wait until it is completely cooled before

removing from the pan.  This is what forms the big clusters of granola making it perfect for snacking on.  I love mixing up a batch before road trips to keep us from loading up on less healthy treats at the gas station.  It’s also great mixed in with some fruit and yogurt for breakfast.

Honey Almond Granola

4 Cups Rolled Oats
1 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/4 Cup Wheat Germ
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/3 Cup Coconut Oil
1/3 Cup Honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl add and stir together all of the dry ingredients.  Heat a small sauce pan over low/medium heat.  Add the coconut oil and honey.  Whisk together.  Can also be warmed in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl.  Heat stirring every 30 seconds until melted and combined.  It’s okay if the honey and coconut oil do not completely combine together.  Just warm and whisk until the oil and honey are melted.  Pour over the oat mixture.  Stir until completely combined.  Dump the granola into a greased rimmed baking sheet.  Spread evenly and press down firmly.  Bake in a preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes.  Cool completely before removing from pan.  Store at room temperature in an airtight container.  Enjoy!
