Recipe/ /Simply Granola

In honor of #Nationaltrailmixday, I'd like to share my lazy, simply, delicious granola recipe. I've scurried and copied some recipes that I've discovered online and created my own version, and here's the final product.

The ingredients to create this yummy snack:
  • 1 cup (or more if you desire) of old fashioned quick oats
  • 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp of cinnamon1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of some local honey
  • a dash of cranberries
  • hand-full of coconut shavings

How to actually make the granola:
Preheat the oven to 425°is your first step.
While the oven is heating up, get your oats in a non-sticking dish and place them in the oven. This gives the oats that extra toasty flavor which you definitely taste in the end. Heat your coconut oil in a pan over one of your burners and allow it to melt. Or if you're like me and would rather just pop it in a microwavable-safe bowl, you can do that instead.

Mix all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Wait for the oats to get a shade darker, or until you can smell the wonderful aroma. Once the oats are toasted enough to your liking, pull them out of the oven and pour them into the mixing bowl with all your desired ingredients. Combine them until the oats are equally covered in love.
Layer a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lay the granola onto the pan evenly. Place the baking sheet in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Then voila! Your own delicious, handmade granola. Enjoy!
