Healthy, Delicious Granola… That Kids LOVE

0 Comment

It’s always difficult to find a healthy recipe that your kids actually enjoy. This is perfect because it can be used for cereal, or a snack or topped on some yogurt.

I usually make this recipe in bulk because I cannot keep it in the pantry! The kids love it (so much so, that they actually sneak it… no joke). Hey, I’m not that mad about it… better than sweets!  😉

It’s super easy if you are slightly challenged in the kitchen, like me, and it’s also fun to make WITH your kids. ENJOY!

Ingredients:
8 cups rolled oats
2 cup sliced almonds
2 cup chopped pecans
2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
2 cup raw walnuts
1 cup grape seed oil
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup of chia seeds

 

Tip:

You can use more/less nuts, whatever you prefer. You can play around with the ingredients and add more of other things you like and eliminate anything you don’t. This is a loose guideline of the recipe. I usually make way more than this so I guesstimate for some of the measurements when I make more. I also like to add some coconut oil (maybe a few tablespoons) and more chia.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients together and toss. Then, mix the wet ingredients together. Combine all ingredients and toss together. Cook for 2-4 increments of 10 minutes mixing the granola in between each. Depending on how large of a batch you are making, it may take more time.

*I like to take a spoonful, let it cool, and if it’s crunchy, that’s when I know it’s done. I will also be sharing a video of this recipe. Stay tuned!*
