Would you be able to post your recipe for homemade granola pretty please? :)

Hey love! Sorry this took so long!

Here’s the homemade granola recipe!

Ingredients:
-2 cups of whole, raw rolled oats
-½ cup of chopped raw almonds
-½ cup of chopped dried ginger
-½ cup of raisins
-1/8 cup of raw black chia seeds
-3 tablespoons of raw honey
-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
-½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
-pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit (150 Celsius). Mix all ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. Spread in a thin layer on a baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes, or until it JUST starts to brown. Keep an eye on it; its sneaky and can brown quickly before you know it! You want the oats to be a tan colour, not actually brown, to keep it from tasting bitter. Remove from oven and allow to cool before putting it in an airtight container for storage.

That should make just over 4 cups of granola, which comes to 132 calories per ¼ cup, which is the serving size I use for the overnight oatmeal. To make that, just add ½ cup of coconut milk (or any other milk you like) in a sealer jar overnight, and in the morning it will have magically transformed into delicious (and not pasty) oatmeal!

I hope you enjoy it! ❤
