Hello Move & Groover’s! I hope everyone has had a fantastic week. To get this weekend started off right, I have a delicious almond and honey granola recipe for you. I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of granola! I love it with milk in the morning, or as an easy on-the-go snack for when I am on the road driving from one fitness class to the next 😉 Better yet, my kids love it too! I used to buy the store bought version, but about a month ago I decided to make it myself. Actually that is a lie, I decided to get my boyfriend to make it himself ;). It was very easy to make and sooooo delicious! And of course as you probably already guessed, it is much healthier. The store bought version just has so many unnecessary ingredients. It really is quick and easy to make. I promise! Okay so enough blabbing, I know you have a busy weekend to get ready for! Here is the recipe:
Homemade Almond and Honey Granola:
10 cups of oats
1 cup of honey (raw unpasteurized is what I like)
1 cup of brown sugar
2 cups almonds
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
Mix together in a large bowl, the oats and almonds.
Place the honey, brown sugar, coconut oil and vanilla and almond extract into a pot, mix together and heat up in a pot. Stir while you heat it so that it doesn’t stick or burn!
Mix together the heated ingredients with the oats and almonds and stir until mixed evenly.
Place the mixed ingredients on a pan covered in parchment paper. Bake at 350° for 10 mins. Take the pan out of the oven and stir the ingredients, then place it back into the oven for another 10 mins. Take it out and give it another stir. After that, turn your oven to low broil and broil it until it is a light golden brown. Not crispy!
Take it out of the oven and let it cool and set. From there you can break it up into pieces. Enjoy! (YUM)
