So, for the homemade granola cereal. I LOVE granola cereal. I really won't eat any other cereal. I grew up on the processed sugary stuff and now the thought of it and all the additives and food coloring turns my stomach. Back to the granola. It can be very expensive to buy in the store and I want to know what all is going into my food, so I searched for a recipe to make my own and found a great one at Homestead Revival. They have much better pictures than mine too!
Let's get started! For my version of this recipe, you will need:
6 cups rolled oats (not quick oats)
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts of choice (I use almonds in mine)
1 cup shredded coconut
1-2 tsp ground cinnamon, depending on your taste
1/2 cup local honey (add more for a stickier, clumpier granola according to Homestead Revival)
1/2 cup coconut oil
It doesn't get any better than that! Yum! Check out Homestead Revival for other options and add-ins for your granola cereal. This is just how I make mine.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
Step 1: Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
Step 2: Combine wet ingredients in a saucepan and heat slowly, until honey and coconut oil are well incorporated
Step 3: Pour the warmed honey and coconut oil mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well.
Step 4: Spread mixture into jelly roll pans
Bake in 300 degree F oven for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Your final creation should look something like this:
Don't forget, Momma makes it better!
