This recipe is less than 10 ingredients, and it’s perfect for meal prep. It’s crunchy, sweet, a good source of protein and complex carbs.

I just love the maple honey flavor in this recipe. It’s sweet, but not overpowering. One of my favorite ways to eat it is sprinkling it over some coconut milk, adding some sliced banana, blueberries, and a drizzle of local honey. So good!



I highly recommend to purchase certified organic oats, because non-organic oats are saturated in glyphosate, which is a neurotoxin ingredient in roundup, and is linked to cancer and other diseases. It’s so worth it to choose organic, and we get to vote with our dollar.

I have linked to some Purely Flourish approved ingredients below. This means that the linked ingredients are free of toxins, artificial ingredients, pesticides, and are 100% pure.

INGREDIENTS



INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and melt the coconut oil.
  2. Add the organic oats, sunflower seeds, mixed nuts, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and sea salt into a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, raw honey, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix very well, coating all of the dry ingredients.
  5. Cut a piece of parchment paper and add it to a baking sheet.
  6. Spread the granola evenly on the parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-35 minutes, stirring and checking every 10 minutes.
  7. The granola is done when it is golden brown, but not burned. Be very careful, and keep an eye on it. Cooking times may vary.
  8. Enjoy! Sprinkle over smoothie or yogurt bowls, or use as a healthy cereal alternative. Or just eat it plain! The opportunities are endless.

I used this granola on this Cantaloupe Yogurt Granola Bowl, which is a deliciously cool, and light summer breakfast. 🙂
