How to make Healthy Homemade Granola

homemade granola is just as good as store bought for a fraction of the price, not to mention it’s much healthier, you can control your ingredients (no excess sugars or additives) and you can customize your granola with your favorite add-ins!

Here’s how I make this healthy homemade granola:

Here’s what you need to make your own granola:

  • rolled oats – I used a gluten free extra thick oat
  • almond flour – I used a blanched almond flour
  • chia seeds
  • ground flax meal
  • walnuts or pecans (or nut of choice
  • sea salt
  • maple syrup – you could sub this for date syrup, agave or honey if not vegan
  • coconut sugar – or granulated sugar of choice
  • coconut oil

That’s it!
