I love making large batches of granola to keep on hand. I actually always double this recipe...it disappears fast and if you're going to make it, you might as well make a lot! It stores well in an air tight container, and will even freeze nicely in a freezer bag. Our favorite way to eat it is with honey vanilla Greek yogurt, but my kids also grab it by the handful & go to town!
1/3 cup honey
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1/8 tsp almond extract
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp coconut oil
1 cup almonds; chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine chopped almonds, oats, salt and brown sugar. Stir to combine.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine honey and coconut oil and heat 30-40 seconds. Stir to dissolve coconut oil. Add extracts.
Pour honey mixture over oats and stir until evenly coated. Pour evenly onto a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 5 minutes, stir and bake for 5 more minutes.
Let cool completely and store in an air tight container.
