HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE GRANOLA
First, combine the dry ingredients—oats, almonds, raisins, cinnamon—in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, melt the coconut oil then add the syrup and vanilla and stir to combine.
Second, pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until everything is well-combined.
Third, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then pour the oat mixture out onto the sheet using a spatula to evenly spread it out.
Bake the oats for 20 minutes, then remove it from the oven and wait 10 minutes for it to cool. The oats will really harden and turn into granola during the cooling process.
HOW LONG WILL GRANOLA STAY FRESH?
This granola recipe will stay fresh for at least a week. I stored mine in a large glass jar with a lid on the countertop and it was fine for a full week. I imagine it could stay fresh for a little longer than that, but I ended up eating all of it so I can’t be certain. Since it stays fresh for a week, it’s the perfect thing to make on Sunday’s if you’re meal prepping for the week!
