While I finish up my blackened shrimp and grits post, I wanted to share with you guys my favorite homemade granola. I’ve been making this for about 5 years and let me tell you, it definitely keeps me from buying over priced cereal. I normally eat it as cereal or use it as a topping on my greek yogurt. It’s super cost effective and delicious, so let’s get to it!
Note: Makes approximately 7-8 cups of granola
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup ground flax seed
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all of the ingredients in a big bowl and mix thoroughly.
3. Divide the mixture evenly onto two 12″ x 17″ baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes.
