♥ Coconut Oil Almond & Honey Granola ♥

I have learnt that coconut oil has a lot of benefits. It boosts brain function, protects the skin, improves digestion, helps in weight loss and great for de-stress.

It seems completely useful to me in all aspect, so I decided to make some healthy breakfast with coconut oil for a good start in the morning.

These granola is extremely profitable, easy and doesn't contain tons of sugar, where commercial granola usually does.

 I toss in some almond and coconut flakes to add a little crunch, and almond extract, but they are totally optional! Serve with milk, greek yogurt, or just on it own! They don't last long!

How to make homemade coconut oil honey granola:

  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine honey and coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir to melt. Add Natvia, salt, vanilla and almond extract.
  3. Pour the honey mixture over the oats and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Spread evenly over the prepared baking sheet, bake for 10-15 minutes, stir half way through baking.
