Almond Joy Granola

 

 

I’ve always loved granola…..but the ingredients in the store bought bags left me thinking that it wasn’t all that healthy. So I started making my own. The kids LOVE it- especially with yogurt. ❤

12 cups uncooked oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup protein powder of choice (vanilla, chocolate, cinnamon roll,etc)
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup honey
1 tbsp vanilla
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Melt coconut oil, honey and vanilla. Mix rest of ingredients in mixing bowl, then pour melted mixture over. Stir, stir, stir, to get everything all combined. Spread on 3 cooking sheets and bake at 300 degrees for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheets, then transfer to container.

Wonderful with greek yogurt, almond milk, etc.
