Healthy Granola

I am bit of a granola nut. There really is not much NOT to love about homemade granola. It is super easy to make with ingredients you most likely have on hand and it makes your house smell amazing when it bakes!! The major bonus when making homemade granola is much less expensive and in my opinion tastier than the store bought versions. If you have not made your own granola yet I highly suggest you start!!

Finished Product!
I love putting granola in my yogurt one of my absolute favorites! I am really trying to stop buying store bought granola because the good stuff is a little pricey and the high sugar and mystery ingredient boxes are…well…enough said. Therefore, that is why making your own is best option for so many reasons.
- 8 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 cup ground flax seed
- 1 cup honey
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp pure almond extract
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp organic raw sugar

-Mix honey and water together in bowl and place in microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute (or until honey is smooth and pour-able). Add in extracts, cinnamon, sugar, and salt into mixture. 
-Add in the oats and flax seed, mix until all the coats are covered. I had to spread it onto baking sheets because the mixture makes a good amount. 

-Bake at 300 for 30 minutes (stirring occasionally), or until crisp or light brown. It will crisp more as it cools!!

Enjoy this amazing recipe with yogurt or as a breakfast cereal!!
