The BEST Granola you’ll ever eat

 

Bold claim: this is the best homemade granola you will ever eat. This stuff is seriously delicious, and we promise that you won’t be able to stop returning to the jar for another handful (and that is NOT a bad thing). Best of all, these ingredients can be found in the Karma bulk section, so get your jars ready and stock up! Recipe is adapted from Oh She Glows, the lovely Toronto-based vegan recipe goddess.

Ingredients:

2 ½ c. rolled oats
½ c. almonds
¼ c. seeds of choice (sunflower, pumpkin, etc.)
2 tbsp. ground flaxseed
2 tbsp. coconut sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. sea salt
pinch nutmeg
1/3 c. maple syrup
¼ c. coconut oil
¼ c. almond butter
1 tsp. Vanilla

Method:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine all your dry ingredients (oats through nutmeg) in a large bowl and stir to combine. In a small saucepan, melt your coconut oil, then add in the maple syrup, almond butter + vanilla and whisk until smooth and combined.

Add your wet mixture to the dry and stir until completely coated.

Spread evenly on your baking sheet (make sure it’s a thin layer so it crisps up – divide between 2 sheets if needed!) and bake for 15 minutes. At this point, remove from the oven and stir it around a little, then return to the oven bake for another 8-10 minutes. Make sure to watch it as it burns easily! Once it’s very lightly browned around the edges, remove from the oven and let it cool completely for about 1 hour before transferring to glass jars for storage. This will keep for up to a month but I promise it won’t last that long!
