    Simple granola recipe

    I have a super yummy and easy granola recipe to share with you. My mom makes homemade granola all the time and it is one of my favorites. Every time I visit she sends me with a bag to take home. She’s always taking care of me and my family. Aren’t mom’s the best?! I now make this granola recipe every month as well, and my whole family loves it.

    Homemade Granola

    This homemade granola is pretty easy to make and is great served on greek yogurt with fresh cut strawberries. It is slightly crunchy and chewy. To make this granola you’ll need:  old fashioned oats, oil, honey, vanilla, brown sugar, coconut and pecans.

    Then you’ll mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and stir until combined. Spread mixture onto a greased jelly roll pan. Bake for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. Put back in the oven for 7-8 more minutes. Remove from oven, stir and let cool. It will harden as it cools, so be careful not to over cook. Store in a air tight container.

    It definitely beats my typical “cereal” breakfast. This also makes a great little snack as well. Top with a little ice cream or whipped topping and you’ve got yourself a nice little treat. I love eating it plain as well!
